4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a deep reddish brown with haze. Small head lasted about 20 seconds. Serious aroma with powerful strong dark fruits, sweet candy sugars, thick molasses malts, spices, and belgian style yeasts. The taste was a blend of the aromas with the dark fruits, dark sweet candies, spices, Belgian yeasts and the malts all coming together. Not overly sweet or cloying. Thick, oily mouth is smooth and good. Finish is bold flavors. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle. Pours deep red with an off-white head. Strong aroma, difficult to identify, somewhere in the neighborhood of soy, dark fruit, vegetal, and cocoa. Similar flavor, a combination of red grape, cocoa, some peanut and mild oxidation tones. It’s an interesting beer to be sure, not bad.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Chewy is right. Thick clear body. Light brown great lacing. I barely detect any yeast which surprises me. Lots of caramel from the malt to get the high %. Not bad at all.
