Bottle, 75cl corked, 2014 vintage. Shared by bergstaden. A dark reddish brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. Unclear. It’s lightly roasted on the nose, with nuts and toffee, some dark chocolate, the typical Belgian strong ale touch, some cork and cellar and some dark chocolate, roasted oats, some cellar and wood and a faint funky touch. It’s sweet, but there’s enough bitterness to prevent it from feeling cloying. Lasting Belgo-fruity finish with some chocolate hints and cellar and wood hints. Another wonderful beer from Allagash. 151010 brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft @ Oakquinox 2013. Mahogany pour with an off-white head. Some bread and toffee malt aroma. Some dark fruit, spice, and wood. Not terribly sweet and a bit herbal. The flavor is very toasty and heavy on the oak. Mild to moderate malt sweetness of toffee and toasted bread. Spice and herb flavors, yeast, dark fruit, and a hint of smoke. bhensonb (15745) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Corked and caged. January 2008 bottle from Marcus (Thanks once more). Vinous, dark fruit and dark malt aromas. Near opaque brown color with garnet glints. Tan head that went up and stayed for awhile. Medium bodied with creamy/fizzy carbonation. All kinds of flavor. Coffee, maybe dark plum fruit, molasses?, chocolate, some heat, some spice. Takes awhile, but some oak comes forth. Very good in the mouth. Reminds me a bit of Glazen Toren Canaster, in a very stepped-down way - certainly no light fruits here. Maybe it resembles cola a trifle? Seems pretty complicated. A great pleasure to drink. djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2015
