3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. Bottle. Didnít know what to expect as I havenít had a beer quite in this style. Smells sweet, a little nutty, and mild piney hops. Looks deep brown with a tight bubbled tan head with leaves clumpy lacing on the glass. Tastes slightly nutty, decent initial hopping adds a dryness on the back of the palate, overall sweet in character with notes of caramel and candied sugar. Good beer, glad I found it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with red hues, tons of soft, off-white head and good lacing. Light cocoa, skunky hops, and Belgian candy gives this beer a bit of an odd aroma. Flavor is a bit better with refined roast malt, light molasses/caramel, and finishing with some moderate, almost citrus, hop flavor. Pretty dry, almost taking away from the finish. Some lingering candy/faint roast. Ok mouthfeel, but Belgian yeast steals some of the maltiness. Pretty smooth, perfectly carbonated. Pieces are there, but choppy.
