This beer is my favorite beer of the OBF. Strong and rich, there is no way one tastes the 11% ABV. Very balanced flavor with no one element taking the spotlight. It's a truly spectacular beer.

Tap at OBF. Pours dark brown with beige bubbles. Aromas of dark fruit and Belgian yeast/spice. Full bodied. Flavor is dark fruit, lighter fruity esters, treacle and arguably kandi. There’s no heat. It’s high on sweet but there’s lots of other things countering that. Sort of a baltic porter that went Belgian. Very tasty. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Rusty brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramelized sugar and yeast. Taste is surprisingly less sweet, more fruit than refined sugar. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2012

Tap @ 15th Ave. Hophouse... Poured deep brown, ruby-ish with a beige head. Low alcohol booziness, malt sweetness, vinous dark fruits. Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Raisins and prune juice. Candy sugar and a mild bitterness. Estery and fruity. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Draft at uber. Pours an opaque dark brown with a loose and creamy tan head. Big sweet caramel, dates, and vanilla nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel date and vanilla mid palate. Not a lot of complexity to the flavor, especially given the abv. mcberko (18999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a cloudy reddish dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, Belgian yeast and hops. Flavour of sweet candied sugar, Belgian yeast, and caramel malt, with almost a peppery note in there. A bit cloyingly sweet, but quite good.
