Be ashamed ... be VERY ashamed. Fall on your knees and welcome our newest ale - REPENT! Be there on Thursday, September 1st* for the introduction of our special new "Belgian Pent." This strong ale starts off sweet, with fruity nuances and hints of caramel and toffee, and finishes smooth with a definite alcohol presence. But look out - its 14% alcohol content is bound to make you beg for forgiveness!

1L bottle, courtesy of scraff. Thanks, Scott! Pours a clear, reddish-amber appearance; light tan head, dissipating quickly. Plenty of candy sugar, red fruits in the aroma. Full, viscous mouthfeel: enormous amounts of candy sugar (almost like a hard candy), syrupy and sticky sweet; somehow maintains a semblance of balance. Long, sticky, sugar and chewy fruit finish.

On tap at. Pours a deep ruby color, slightly hazy with a thin off white head. Aroma is thickly sweet with fruits and fruit-like esters- deep red plums, sugary raisins, along with caramel, molasses, candy sugar and slightly yeasty as it warms. Flavor is also very sweet- loaded with caramel, deep dark stewed crystal malts- probably special B. More fruits, molasses, toffee, a bit of tobacco, and more belgina yeast in there. The belgian quality actually gets hidden behind all the malt and sweetness. I bet they were trying to go higher but the yeast crapped out and they were stuck with a very high FG. Still a pretty good beer, if just to sip on- unique. The last part of my notes just says "diabetes". haha.

Oh, wow! Remembering this from the sampler appetizer brings some sweet memories. Didnt realize what I was getting into, however, I liked it. Sweetness could have been toned down a little, but I cant wait for this years offering!

Hand bottled sample: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma has lots of rich, sweet caramely malt wtih some dark fruit complexity and bready Belgian yeast. Starts with lots of sweet sticky malt, dark fruity complexity and a touch of candi sugar and yeastiness. Nicely balanced and very flavorful.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Growler courtesy of BuckNaked. Clear dark mahogany color, with only a ring of film for head. Huge sticky-sweet aroma. Lots of sweet malt, all kinds of dark fruit, and some burning alcohol. Flavor even sweter than the aroma indicates, tons of sticky sweet malt. Huge mollasses and syrup like flavor. Through the middle get all kinds of fruit. Raisin, apple and cherry come to mind. Tons of residuel sugar towards the finish. Almost no alcohol detectable in the flavor whatsoever. Great sticky-oily mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this beer. Falls into the after dinner-sipper category for all the sweetness though. A couple ounces would be plenty.

Big thanks to Styles for the hand bottle. Poured a clear brown with a red tint and thin off white head. Thick sweet aroma of malt, raisins and light alcohol. Alcohol is well hidden for its level. Flavor matches the aroma. thick and sweet. Some cherry. Almost syrupy full body.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Very much like a mead. Sticky on the palate, honey sweet with cramel & candy undertones, yet also silky & smooth & this combination of aroma, body & tastes masks the alcohol content quite well. A soft copper ruby hue in color with no particular trace of light yeast on the nose. Meant to be sipped & enjoyed slowly.

argo0 (14106) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2006
(Bowie) Clear mahogany body with a small beige head. Served too cold, but after letting it warm, the aroma moderately sweet, candi sugar, maple, some cherry, alcohol. Taste is sweet, maple, molasses, cherry, moderate alcohol warming. Syrupy full body. Decent for what it is, but the sweetness/syrup is not really my thing.

DavidtheM (7) - Carmel, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2006 does not count
Lots of fruity esters in the aroma. Ruby red color with dense white foam. The flavor is out of this world, with fruit, spice and malt aplenty!

Tap at Arundel Mills. Very nice brown pour. Filled up a trapist glass. Sweet aroma with very little head. A syrupy taste to it. A pretty good belgian strong. One of my favorite seasonals that they have.
