Dark chestnut colored ale with a nice steady off-white head. Aroma is all about finesse, loads of blossoms and spring flowers. The mouth-feel is refined, playful and complex with Saison-like peppery flavors. Soft nutty after taste with a bite."

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Pours a dark chestnut brown color that is completely opaque with a two finger frothy, pillowy yellowish beige head that has very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with hints of zesty spice, roasted malt and sweet dark fruit. Thereís some subtle funk in the nose with a prominent floral presence that compliments the peppery notes. Hints of chocolate, caramel and toffee as well as some raisin and plum. Creamy medium body with a lot of tight carbonation and zesty spice up front that lingers throughout over the roasted malt and sweet dark fruit notes into a very dry finish. The carbonation is excessive and quite unpleasant, overpowering the flavors of the beer. After a while the palate adjusts and it becomes more complex. Lots of zesty peppery spice countered by a subtle floral presence, some roasted malt and sweet dark fruit notes. Hints of chocolate, caramel, fig, plum and raisin. Subtle alcohol het but overall the ABV is decently masked. This could have been a very complex flavorful beer but the carbonation problems really hurt it and it is a bit heavy on the spices for my preference.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Sampled at the porter beer bar in atlanta. Murky purplish brown pour with ring of tan head. Nose is dark and spicy and has a good deal of floral notes that come out in the flavor. Very flavorful, very complex, very unique, but I just didnít particularly care for it. Too much on the sweet side I think.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle from the Yeast Shop. Poured a murky brown colour with a generous, largely lingering tan head. Vibrant nose of dark fruit, spices, brown sugar and yeast. Lovely smooth mouthfeel. Flavour was sweet and had further fruit/spice notes in tandem with a slight tartness which dissipated as the gently warming booze kicked in. Some hop presence in the shadows. Sweetness lingered on in to the finish. Plenty to admire here. Quality beer.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 3, 2011
(330 ml bottle from Rising Tide) Pours dark brown, nearly opaque, perhaps hints of a dark red/rust hue. Two finger tan head recedes to a thin lasting layer. Aroma of dark fruity vinousness and cooked sugar. Mouthfeel smooth, light thin, a touch fizzy. Flavor is boozy, hot, red wine and dark chocolate. Refined and unrefined at the same time.

mixmasterob (982) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2011
On draught @ Cypress Street. Dark ruby red/brown pour. No head. Aroma was full of sweet malt, quite nutty, light belgian yeast. Lots of dark fruit too, figs. Flavors were sweet candy sugar, dark malt and some yeasty flavors. Gained complexity as it warmed. Big smooth body with light carbonation. Tasty stuff, like a big dubbel.

HonkeyBra (3826) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Murky brown pour with medium sized off white head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of Belgian yeast esters. There is some candi sugar. Some flowery notes. Pretty nice. Flavor of dark fruitys: plums, figs, raisins. Nice belgian yeast notes. The wheat gives it some bubblegum and banana notes. Medium bodied. Pretty lively carbonation. Finishes on a yeasty fruity note. Pretty great, well-balanced, belgian-styled beer.

mumares (98) - BELGIUM - APR 27, 2011
Pours brown with a good egg coloured head. Aroma is sweet, fruity (banana) and spices (pepper, coriander) Not very balanced, lots of alcohol. Also some bitterness in the end. Feels confused and a bit of a let down for me.
