Bottle: Dark reddish brown with an off white head. Dark fruit, cocoa, and spice aroma is followed by a fruity taste (stone fruit - apricot and plum - and raisins) and spices. Fairly balance with a slightly bitter finish.

A very good Belgian styled beer. Heavy in alcohol without that aggressive burn. Dark yet some spice and fruit flavours, not just all malt. Very nice!

Malty with a little sweetness. Not highly carbonates but still fizzy. Just OK, nothing I think I’ll buy again..

Pours murky, muddy brown. Raisins, and plum dominate the aromas. Palate is thick and slightly sticky. Tastes are the aforementioned raisins and plums, but some up front mint is on the tongue too. Maybe a bit of sweet molasses on the swallow.
A good solid craft brew, but the hyperbole swirling around this one, exceeded the actual experience of drinking it.

3/22/15 (Bottle) - Excellent dark pour with a nice white tan pillow head. Several fruits including raisins, cinnamon as well as caramel and others. Very pleasant taste, light texture and mild carbonation, but heavy kick and ABV - you feel it after drinking.

From a 12 ounce bottle into a Trappist glass. Pours a deep brown with a tad of head. Barely illuminates when held to a lamp. Nutty, fruity nose. Taste is some kind of tree fruit that fades well. Not too sweet. Not too shabby either. Note: this is compared to port, which is nauseatingly sweet for me. This beer is nowhere near the ports I have tried, only in minuscule flavor maybe. Don’t let the comparison be off-putting please.
