Friend of mine brought two of these to our monthly beer club meeting. Poured dark brown with nice medium layer of foamy brown head. Aroma tad fruity balsamic vinegar, banana yeast notes and slight chocolate. Flavor as the description suggests is a blend of two styles - some level of dark roastiness characteric of a stout and then some banana fruity yeasty esters characteristic of a Belgian. Reminds me a lot of trubador. Overall, a worthy sample

750 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Barrel Room Collection gift pack). Pours a dark brown with orange edges and fairly large tan head. Aroma has strong hit of Belgian yeast, lots of dark fruit, spice and hints of wood. Flavour has plum, raisin, cherry, clove, some roasty malt and hints of oak. Some alcohol also apparent. Thinner than I would have anticipated. All in all pretty good.

750ml corked and caged. Dark, ruby brown pour, with a small off white head. Quite a dark fruit, cherry, smoky aroma. Light spices, some wood and some tartness i was not expecting. Tastes like this beer was aged on sour cherries, weird. The finish is not very bitter, and ends with coffee, and light roast with some lingering sweet dark fruit.

It poured a clear dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, spicy esters, some vanilla and a hint of vinegar. The taste was of cocoa, zesty spices, plums, some dark fruits, a little alcohol and a light tartness. It had a medium body with a fairly thin mouth feel. Not bad.
