3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. A deep amber with a sturdy, lasting head. Slight aroma of yeast, caramel, and fruitcake. Initial flavor is a solid malt and burnt sugar, followed by fruit, just a bit of booze and a slightly dry finish. Very smooth. Overall pretty average.

On tap at MacGregor’s. I thought this was a pretty good attempt for Americans at the style. Lacked a bit of the complexity and depth, but very drinkable, and generally on style.
Plenty of Belgian Candy Syrup noted, some dark fruit, a bit of licorice and cherries. Very nice.

An ok beer if not memorable at all. While it claims Belgian yeast, I don't really get that in flavor. It's just an average malty beer reminiscent of a scotch ale.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells oddly sweet and a bit yeasty. Tastes like it smells, only not as off-putting. Average on the palate. Eh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy dark amber/brown color with a finger and a half of frothy tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, Belgian yeast, sweet fruits, and Belgian spices. Taste of light roasted malt, hints of Belgian yeast and banana, some spice, and a light sweet fruitiness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into english pint, cola brown with light short lasting head that only stuck to glass edge. Aroma is malt. Mouth feel is watery. Roasted malt taste, it does have a bit of a a by ale tint. Slight warming on finish. Nutty also on the end of finish, not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Pours a deep red/brownish color. Not much head and didn’t last long. Aroma is light and malty. Flavor is light and malty as well; there’s a little fruitiness and toastiness to it and I can detect the belgian yeasts. This one was a little hot on the alcohol for some reason which is strange for a 5-6% beer. My biggest gripe though is it’s extremely light bodied to the point where it feels a bit watered down. I wasn’t diggin that at all. Overall not bad but not great.
