Bottle from Sabatinis Pizza in Exeter, PA. Striking aroma and flavor of biting dark cherry/raisin saddled with grapes, plums, chocolate and an aftertaste which kind of reminds me of a bitter roasted juicy fruit gum with a shade of wood. (if it was a bit less on the listerine side, this would be in my top ten!) This is where the beer turns dry on my tongue after the creamy fruit layer hits my lips. The malts are very prominent and the hops come out in the finish. This finish became more notable as the beer warmed up. moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Thanks to BDR for sharing. 750 bottle. Opaque, dark brown pour. Aroma of dark fruit and spices. Flavor of fig, raisin and spices. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Outstanding beer! wickedpete (636) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2008

At Savor. Conjures images of mounds of chocolate. Thick pour leaves nutmeg on the nose with the omnipresent chocolate notes. Covers the tongue and won’t let go. Molasses, apricot then on to a dark chocolate finish. Ratman197 (15632) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2008
750 ml bottle poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a small lingerting tan head. Aromas of charcoal, fruittiness, roastiness and light mollasses. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of chocolate, dark fruit and brown sugar with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish.

This beer kind of glows in the glass -- not to deify it, but it really gives you the sense of being something special. Aromas are light, but give a preview of raisin, dried pit fruit, and Raisin Bran. Sorry, but it’s in there. Really rich palate. Lots of malts. A generous finish of chocolate and sweet dark fruit like raisin and prune and plum. Very nice and very complex beer. RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2008
This is my second brew from the Patron Saints Club. Aroma is a sweet roasted scent. Color is a solid amber with good carbonation and a very thin but very tight head. Taste is bold, rich and smooth. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth with a slight crisp feel coming in at the end. Finish comes on with a rich feel that brings on a sweet raisin taste and a roasted flavor then a light hop flavor. After taste is a creamy dried fruit taste and a slight alcohol feel. This is a fabulous brew, I wish I could drink one of these everyday. I now look forward to the next brew from them. SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Dark reddish-brown pour with a small but tight tan head. Lots of dark, dried fruit in the aroma, as well as roasty malt and brown sugar. Good flavor, sweet, malty and spicy with a good alcohol bite. Very good. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a deep coffee color with a minute head. Pretty aroma of rum and butter toffee. Flavor is of dried fruit, nutmeg, and chocolate. Very nice finish, with alcohol well disguised until you try to get up after the second glass!! Cobra (1100) - - MAY 11, 2008
750 ml. brown Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen.
Poured out a dark cola brown, with a sticky, but sparse, tan colored head. Aromas are of rum soaked raisins, prunes, some dank basement. Flavors are of raisins soaked in Bourbon, slight oak and vanilla, dark dried fruit, sweet malts, earthy hops. Thick mouthfeel, rich and chewy. Almost a meal in a glass. Damn tasty beer overall. Wish I had more than just the one.
