From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (conclusion!) on March 30. The pour is a medium brown with a soft ring of white head and no lacing. The aroma is strong on the malt characters. There is a light caramel and dark fruit character, but I like how the malt is pretty dominant here. The flavor is more yeasty and typical of a Belgian. There is some decent maltiness throughout the flavor as well. The mouth feel is a bit thin, and there aren’t many overwhelmingly great notes. The carbonation is light, and the aftertaste is also pretty light

Torn on this. It is a hybrid of a belgian strong ale. Lots of malt but a sour aftertaste. A good beer, but definitely different.

On tap at the Laundry, Fenton,MI...pours brownish black and the 1st sip is spicy-sweet without being cloying. Has a depth of flavor grounded in malty chocolate with dry fruit. Surprisingly drinkable for a big chocolaty Belgian, this beer will instill the deadly sin of Envy in all monks that drink it.

Pours a very dark coffee brown, with medium head. Aromas of caramel, coffee, toffee. Chocolaty, malty flavor. Nice blend of sweetness and bitterness.

Draft at renos. Nice murky cranberry color. Does not taste like its aroma at all. Fruity Belgian flavor. Not bad.

Draft at Reno's east. Golden with a ruby hue and a minimal off white head. Citrus, caramel and yeasty aromas. Mild citrus and really grassy. Pretty thick.

Sweet alcohol taste, with some spices. Attractive cloudy black color, with impressively tall head with fine bubbles. Very modest aroma.

Growler shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma had roasted malts, chocolate, Belgian candi sugar, and some dark fruits. The flavor had the same; roasted malts bordering on ashy, chocolate, dark fruits and Belgian candi sugar. There is a decent amount of sweetness throughout and a slight bitterness at the finish.
