3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Paddle @ Mellow Mushroom. Dark frothy pour. Syrupy, sweet aroma balanced with porter like malt. Strong ale-like body with brett tones in a porter? Enjoyed this brew immensely, however. Thomas Creek creates some quality quaffable products.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich brown black with quickly receding head. Aromas are distinctively belgian with dusty banana, but clearly accentuating the dark fruit, raisin, molasses, coffee, & smoky, dark roasted grains. Palate is smooth and full, quickly becoming crisp & dry. Flavours continue with dark chocolate, syrup, coffee & hints of celery, grass, & honey on the finish. Very well crafted & enjoyable.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with red highlights and a tan head. Aroma is chocolate. Flavor is chocolate with some roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany with a small off-white head. Has a unique aroma and flavor that is hard to characterize. The flavor is sweet ... a bit too much so despite some tartness. Spicy, but without having much attractiveness or identity. More prune flavor than any beer I can remember.
O - A rich and interesting brew that I enjoyed more than one might guess from the description above.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with big, foamy, brown head / Acidic, sour, medicinal nose of orchard fruit, chocolate / Medium body, acidic and somewhat sour, grassy, with the delicate balance of some Belgians, but lacking the malts for a porter? / Flavors of grass, turning orchard fruit, cocoa, coffee, caramel, cinnamon, and nut / Don’t quite know what to make of this. Peculiar, but not without interest. Close to a Belgian stout. Ultimately, probably needs reworking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle thanks to Santa! Pours a pure black color with a small beige head. A nice nose of chocolate and cocoa, some ash and light straw. The flavor is pretty much a dead on big old porter with very light grains and banana. Dry, but not tart or funky. Pretty good. Very drinkable despite a bit of warmth. Nice.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really not impressed with this one. Sweet dark belgian candy and alchol overpowers everything. From a bottle. Smell is musty. Flavor makes this a miserable beer. Try again.
