Draft at Jerry’s. Dark brown with good, foamy, tan head / Toasty nose of roast barley, weed, pine, and chocolate / Medium body, a touch thin, malty with some chew, some sweetness but mostly dry with lots of bitterness / Astringent flavors of dark roast coffee and grass, with notes of lemon / Not bad, but ultimately awkward. No Belgian character. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
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.

Draft at renos. Nice murky cranberry color. Does not taste like its aroma at all. Fruity Belgian flavor. Not bad. firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
Tap. Dark brown-black. Lingering, small layer of head. Boozey, bourbon-esque nose. Tastes strongly of booze, raisin, some fig. stevoj (4966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle share courtesy of Rick. Belgian with nice woody notes. Brown, kind of thin body, soft airy head. Kind of sweet, yeast pulls through.

This is one of the weaker offerings form this brewery but still tasty. Dark fruits dominate, it is sweet with a bit of tang. CpyNPrnT (616) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2014
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. jake65 (3626) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle share. Brown color with a small ring of beige head. Aroma is a light roast, earthy bits, and a little Belgian yeast. Taste is a little on the roasty side, lightly sweet, faint spice, and the Belgian yeast again. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the source... Pours a less than cola like pour, somewhat transparent and topped with a quickly dissipating head leaving virtually nothing... Dark fruit, cocoa with a little chocolate. Some banana and that same yeasty profile consistent with most of their beer actually... Sweet toffee and lighter cocoa with more of that similar yeast influence. Mostly sweet, honey-like through the middle with a modicum of distant earthy bitterness on the backend. Just bigger than medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. milewide (2221) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Sweet alcohol taste, with some spices. Attractive cloudy black color, with impressively tall head with fine bubbles. Very modest aroma.
