On tap at the taproom also rating #2500: Poured a dark brown chocolate with a off white tan head. Aroma is dark fruits. Taste is raisin and plum fruit with a nice sweet malt that makes it very abbey like. My thoughts is this is very enjoyable to my palate. reminds me of my Belgian beer day! jbruner (4745) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Pours a dark hazy reddish brown on tap with thin tan head and little to no lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast and dark fruits. Taste follows suit, but a chocolate malt and toffee backbone. Good balance and nice for the style. jcartamdg (3445) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Pours cherrywood brown with no head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweetness and slightly boozy. Taste follows, too sweet. I'm a fan of this style and this does not represent well.

On tap at Funky Buddha. Pours hazy brownish amber with an off-white head. Aromas of bubblegum, yeast, spices, dark fruits, and bready malts. Flavors of plum, raisans, caramel, dark bready malts, bubblegum, and little bit of sweetness in the end. ABV is well hidden. Not to shabby.

Color is a deep cloudy red with a if fluffy head. Flavor is sweet lime with a rough caramel flavor. It is a little caustic and dirty, not feeling happy about this. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft at Proof. Deep hazy brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma first hints at estery yeast, plums, with bits of toffee malts. Flavor is chewy toffee, dark fruits, and bitter apple in the end. Not bad. OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
On tap at ccb. Nose is plums and prunes, some belgian yeast, toffee, and some beets. Pour is a dark brown with an off-white head. Taste follows suit with tons of fruity esters, some yeast, and a good dose of toffee. Good stuff. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Thanks to OmegaX for the share. Pours a cloudy brown, almost like apple juice. The smell was full of yeast, crackers and dried citrus. This was a fairly sweet Belgian, lots of cherries in yeast in the taste with plenty of mellow, bready undertones. At 8.8% it was fun to drink as well - cheers!

A smooth Belgian style ale from Cigar City. Nice flowery, sweet, and malty character with little or no alcohol bite. Pours dark brown with very small head.
