Thanks Jason for sharing bottle #63/180 bottled on 8-11-05. The beer pours to a chestnut colored body with a nice white head. The aroma is minerally, much like an Abbaye de Rocs Brune. Kiwi fruit. The flavor is minterally, yeasty, light banana, lemongrass. Delicious. The palate is medium bodied, minerally, great carbonated feel. Really darn good beer.

Dark copper color, sweet aroma, caramel taste and a weir spicey aftertaste. I like this beer

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of light fruit with Belgian spices with an underlying note of sweet bread. Flavor starts with a note of dark bread that is joined by Belgian and spice with some fruit and a hint of warming booze.

Draft at Prado. Dark brown with a thin off white head. Scent of toasted malt and fruit. Taste is raisins and tart fruit. Not for me

On draft at Prado location. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is pepper, sage, cardamom, cinnamon, and malt with some yeast esters. Flavor is similar- spicy beer, and not with heat. Flavor shows off the malts and quickly follows them with spices. Play pick the spices! It’s fun. Medium in body and nice beer overall.

Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Very pleasant floral aroma and tastes of chocolate citrus and spice. Quite good.

Draught at brewpub. This beer reminded me of Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury. Dubbel with strong chocolate and fruit taste. Well done.

On tap at brewpub. Poured deep amberish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of spice, fruits - banana & dark fruits -, and sweet malt. Taste is simlarly fruity and malty, with a good bit of belgian spice. Finish is sticky and smooth. Body is lightly carbonated and full. Overall, a nice brew from the best of the 5 Seasons brewpubs.

Bottle gifted by Dennis at the Roswell. Rich caramel sugar aroma. Mellow drinker, with a definite brown sugar essence. Quite drinkable. (#3853, 2/23/2010)
