Pours a nice dark amber colour with slightly brownish head that hangs around. Aroma is sweeter with a roasted aroma and hints of chocolate. Body is foremostly sweet and slightly alcoholic. Aftertaste is more alcohol with some hints of the roasted pecansncoming through. A very strong beer, for fans of belgians with a roasted twist.

jkwood04 (3429) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 10, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of lots of caramel, chocolate, and light roast from the malts, some light maple, a light nuttiness, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a good blend of everything, but a little too much sweetness and some hints of alcohol. Average texture. A decent beer.

tectactoe (1173) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Matt! Mostly opaque, murky brown, kind of like a quad with less red-ish tones to it... Beige colored head settles quick without leaving much of anything behind. Aroma is full of some damp chocolate notes, toasted malts, faint nuts, and rubbing alcohol... the solvent-y note is quite strong. Taste is very nutty, woodsy, & has a good amount of maple to it. Light earthiness. Still getting a strong solvent & rubbing alcohol note in the finish that’s killing the vibe... Without that, this beer would be very nice. It’s a big hindrance after the first few ounces.
