4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep dark brown with a flourishing head of beige foam that recedes to a very thin cap. Soapy lacing and alcohol legs. On the nose it’s cherries, bready yeast, strong malt undertones, sticky fruit and some horse blanket. The hops are forward on the palate with a little pepper accompanied by the yeasty sweetness and the ripe fruits. The malt is good and strong like a dark beer should be but the balance is perfection. It has a medium-heavy body but it’s practically weightless on the palate and finishes off-dry with some alcohol warming. This ale has dash and a soaring spirit. One of the best.

Bottle bought at the Beerstore in Hamilton/Canada picked by my good friend and craft beer geek Erik. I’m a European on vacation in Canada and well know all the Belgian ales available in stores, so he wanted to pick a Canadian belgian style ale for me to taste. Overall a tasty beer, not so mind blowing like Westmale but stil good.

Transfer from BA review on 5-16-12-
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a dark brownish brew with a reddish tint. Upon serving there was a light white head that faded rapidly to give a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heavy of dark fruits with notes of roasted malt and brown bread. It is mixed with a light yeast, spice and chocolate aroma. It is quite nice.
Taste – The taste starts out as dark fruit and cocoa. It’s a nice dark chocolate covered cherry and raisin taste mixed with a brown bread flavor. As the taste advances the fruit and the bread remain but the chocolate begins to fade. In the middle some tastes of yeast and a light spice come to the tongue. From there a lighter caramel and toffee sweetness mix. All these flavors persist to the end where they are met with a lighter alcohol flavor that leaves a warming sweet taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is on the creamier side with a medium level of carbonation. Both are quite fitting for the sweeter complex flavors of the brew. The body provides enough thickness to where it can really permeate the tongue while the carbonation suits the sweeter flavors well.
Overall – A very nice tasting Belgian dark. A great flavor profile with a wonderful aroma and feel. A brew to try.

Aroma: Dark fruit aromas with hints of wine.
Appearance: Dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly.
Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a light sourness in the finish.
Palate: Medium body, thick texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Rich and complex tastes, very much like a well aged wine. Very solid beer. I would seek this out again.
