"Dark fruit and candy spice on the nose. Caramel-lighter brown in color. Prickly but sticky too. Bready yeasty flavor with roasted malt and chocolate. One of the better Commons brews."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at the Grain & Gristle restaurant in Portland. Super dark fruit aroma: concentrated cherries, plums, raisins. Reddish-amber with ruby tints. Thick malty initial, with some good dark caramel / mid palate has mild raisins, dates, and a touch of yeast / finish is warm, smooth, and very well balanced. Medium-heavy body, with good light carbonation. Very good stuff. Complex flavor changes throughout.

Tap @ The Commons Brewery... Poured a deep reddish/rust color with a moderate, off-white head. Nice tasting Belgian ale here. Some citrus, fruit esters and yeast spices. Mild mouthfeel and only a little dryng with candied malt tones. Despite the ABV quite quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark caramel nose, seems to have wood and bourbon notes, though that’s all in my head. Dark toffee with a sandy head. Richly sweet, some orange blossom, and more young bourbon and wood. I really can’t believe this isn’t aged in a barrel. Dark candy sugar, little heat in the middle that quiets in the finish.

Dark brown in color, clear with a tin head. Big malt aroma and flavor. Sweet candy flavors with caramel and light hops. Easy drinking strong ale. Nice beer and I can’t wait to try more from this place.
