KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2013
22oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a purple hue and a small (less than 1 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced down to a large puddle and medium collar with excellent full sheets of layered lacing. The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt and a sweet doughy Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, cinnamon, coriander and dark fruit (figs, dates, berries and overripe plums). The taste was a bold malty sweet with notes of caramel and dark fruit pretty much throughout, with the finish being a tad yeasty and having a mildly spicy alcohol ending. The flavor lasted and average duration following the swallow with a mild spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds along with a slow creeping alcohol warming sensation. Mouthfeel was just a bit under medium in body with a nice smooth creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a brew with a nice bold fruitiness which melded nicely with the Belgian yeast and the mild spiciness, allowing for a smooth and easy drinkability that hid the high ABV almost totally, except for a slight warming sensation towards the end...

BB backlog, Pours a brown color with medium head. Smell is raisin, plum, and belgian yeast. All kinds of sweet malt, random spice, and booze in the flavor of this Green Flash. Body is medium. Not a fan of this "Belgian Strong"....too big and sweet

bottle. deep brown with one finger head. this bottle has over three years on it, but it seems like its held up ok. malty with dark fruit, particularly raisin and plum, some brown sugar. slightly bitter finish, but it doesnt seem like the bitterness is hoppy. some mild belgian influence as well.

draft that poured a nice big nose of sweet malts and dark fruits all blended nicely together. mild hops on the end. the flavor was very smooth of sweet malts and dark fruits maybe plums and cherries and possibly some raisin. there is a smooth alcohol burn on the end but nothing to really note of...very nice all the way around.

Dark reddish-brown pour with thin tan head. Smells of raisins, toast, and alcohol. Heavy fruit flavor with some alcohol, but finishes pretty clean. Whats left is a nice malty lingering aftertaste.
