3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Im fairly confident that I got a bad bottle. No head and barley a bubble I’ve had this beer before and I don’t remember the beer being like this. Malty like a brown ale with a belgian touch this beer has potential.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy deep brownish red with a small soapy off white head that leaves a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma is a strange combination of rasins, dark chocolate, yeasts, nuts, toffee, roasted coffee beans. Flavor is rasins, burnt coffee, yeasts, wood. Finishes bitter from the chocolate and finishes with an almost powdery mouthfeel. Strange brew, didn’t do it for me but definitely unique.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer has great potential with its raisin, brown sugar, vanilla extract aroma, but it definitely evokes more of an overall doppelbock feel than a strong belgian due to the complete lack of carbonation. Had two glasses of this and the second one was poured aggresively only to yield a tiny 1/3 inch head. Flavor is light woodiness, a little fig but not much else. I’m very interested at how this could be with a tweak in the yeast levels by the brewery. Thank You Rock Art. 2009 22 oz.

Thanks to josarah for this beer. Pours a rich caramel color with very thin tan head. Aroamas of sweet malts, raisins, caramel and toffee. Flavors of roasted beans, chocolate, and hazelnuts. Nice bitter hop flavors as well. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Enjoyable beer after a long day. Thanks Joe!

So what is this beer? Belgain strong ale? Brown Ale? Get a bottle and let me know what you think because I have no idea. But it is pretty good. World class? No. But good anyway.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy dark red, brown with a 1/2" off white head. Aroma is sweet malt and brown sugar. Flavor was the same plus some dark fruit flavors and some mild hop presence. Pretty much a 1 dimensional brew. I was hoping the belgian yeast would give it a little more zip. None the less, I recomend trying it if you happen to be in Vermont.
