Good stuff. Pours dark dark brown with light foam. Thin body really hampers the mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and fruity with a tangy hop yeast finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark reddish brown with a big tan head with good retention. Smell like some spice, vanilla, and a drops of coffee. Taste is lightly spiced, with some coffee notes. This taste light to me, void of complexity and not much of an after taste going on. This is not bad, but I couldn’t really get into it.

1/25/12. 750mL bottle. Not quite opaque black pour, ruby edges, under a small tan head. Whoooooa, I was not expecting this aroma. There’s oak, tart cherries, vinegar, a bit of acid, and some roast and chocolate. Sweet and tart cherries hit the tongue first with dusty roastiness following along with lingering roast, coffee, and chocolate. This is one interesting and pretty tasty brew.

750 ml. caged and corked bottle. Pours a medium, beige, long duration head, over a clear, reddish brown body....nose is light vanilla, light chocolate, hints of coffee, touches of dried fruit (cherry, Raisin)....taste is light cocoa, vanilla, hints of raisin, fig, dried cherry, finishing with a hint of molasses...mouth feel light of medium, alcohol heat present, carbonation makes for a fizzy qualia. This is a light take on the Dark Belgian Strong style. The aromas and flavors are lighter and less complex than in the best. Additionally, it has a very light mouth feel. Finally the carbonation is so high that it creates a neigh on soda pop mouth feel. A bigger malt back bone would have obviated most of these complaints BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

750 ml cork and cage. Brown-black color. Bold aromas of oily organic peanut butter, fruity caramels and yeasty cheese pastries with a supple, dry, fruity meduim body with touches of berry yogurt, roasted root vegetables and mossy earth. Excellent complexity, depth and style.

Aroma is Belgian spices with dark fruits and mild mocha coffee. The darker, dustier flavors emerge when it warms up. The appearance is good head retention atop an uber-cloudy deep purple. The flavor is sugary dates and dark berries. Sour cherry, mocha and hazelnut at the end. Has a puckery red-wine quality. Nutty, malty finish. Improves as it warms up. Silky at first, and then a little fizzy, finishes chunky. Most akin to a Belgian dubbel with the finish of a porter.
