Tap at Flying Saucer, Houston.dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a thick amber with a peachy raisin, banana, and clove nose. Flavor is Pilsnery banana clove. Tingly mouthfeel but not much to brag about. Not bad; the sum of its parts saves it.
This beer pours a dark amber with a medium tan head. the aromas are closer, nuts and malt. the mouthfeel is lightly sweet and not super lively. not a great beer but not bad either. Cheers! legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Nice to smell, nice to look at, but not much else going on here. The alcohol is well hidden, but no spice. ilovedarkbeer (2737) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2010

Cloudy amber beer, thin head, weak aroma with hints of ginger and spicy hops. Texture is like light syrup. Flavor is sweet and has an apple aftertaste. There is a medium stength bite and a burn on the backend.
Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of spice, malt and grain. Taste is of malt, grain and candy sugar. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2010
On tap at the Whip In in Austin.
Pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma was caramel with some dark fruit and some spices. You also get some Belgian yeast characteristics. The flavor is more of the same with dark fruits like raisins being prevalent. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A nice one-off from 512. I look forward to others in the future.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy amber with a small creamy white head that leaces good sticky lacing. The aroma is a dark fruity malt with clove and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a dry malt with raisin and clove with a nice dry finish. Hides the alcohol well making it very easy to drink. A very good belgian strong ale from (512). thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
(Growler thanks to fratto) Pours clear brown with no head but some oily bubbles. Nose of dark fruit and banana. Taste is ripened banana, coriander and nicely sweet. Some alcohol on the finish but overall this is great.
