Purchased while in Florida. Pours a deep amber color with an off white head. Flavors of caramel melded with some spice and hops, nice saison like finish. Really unique brew here and very drinkable. I’m loving this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.
I didn’t really expect a Belgian Dubbel-esque beer. Pour is brown with a white sudsy head. Smells of candy sweetness, bread and caramel. Taste is somewhat sweet with a yeasty character. Moderate carbonation. Finishes spicy. 2014-07-18

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled back in 2013 Autumn I assume.
Pours dark amber with a solid quilt of light tans. Smells of sweet malts, some mango, some caramel and belgian yeast with a bit of cola in the back. Flavor is malty with more cola and some prune and slight bitterness over plenty of sweet tea and belgian yeast. Medium bodied with a moderately reserved carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottled 06/26/13. Reddish copper with a huge foam that settles into a lasting disc. Scents of toasted nut, plum, toffee, and spicy dark banana bread. Taste of toffee, raisin, pecan, toast, and dry earthy spice mix - galangal, coriander seed, nutmeg. Some hints of lightly tart cherry and citrus zest. Finish has some slight wooden hop notes. Medium body is velvety smooth with a low carbonation and a nice balance. Don’t know how it was last autumn, but it aged well in the bottle for nearly a year.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a dark brown in color with some ruby highlights and a thick one finger off white head. Aroma has grains, caramel, damp yeast, and a bit of rye like spice. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has quite a bit of caramel, grains, yeast. banana, light spice, and mild bitterness into the finish. Some fruit drifts in and out with earthy nuts mixed in. Interesting.....

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle pours a deep reddish brown. Aroma is yeasty and a little bit of funky esters. The taste is unique and similar to a marzen/octoberfest style beer but with the belgian yeast. It works! Very easy to drink with not alot of hop bitterness. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours grainy amber with off white head. Aroma is very malty. Lots of barley malt character with a fairly smooth light body. Little bit of spice to, some pepper. Little bit more bitter hops to it that usual with this style. Not bad.

Bottle. Muddy brown and lively upon opening. Malty and slightly sulphuric. Medium body and slightly sulphuric. The label is more interesting than the beer.
