3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly cloudy darker brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is pretty complex and interesting... nose is a little sweet with some raisin and fig in there as well as some rock candy; I also get just a hint of some more savory spice (pepper?) upon further sniffs. Taste is sweet with dark fruits in there, and feels a little heavy. Decent brew.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Hazy chestnut colored with a cm of tan head. Aroma is a bit faint, but plummy, with some spices. Taste is the same, but with cocoa notes, and is somewhat reminiscent of a Christmas pudding. This is basically a dubbel recipe that ups the alcohol, and doubles down on the special B and dark candi sugar type flavors. $6/22

I really enjoyed this one... Lots of Belgian spice and sugar with deeper flavors and maltiness. As it warmed the flavors of fig and raisin really showed through, but it also approached cloying sweetness. I'd like to investigate some food pairings with Odin's beer as their slogan suggests... Next stop, Odin Brewery!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle fairly new. Pours hazy brown with some diminishing head and lace. Aroma is fairly light fresh toasted barley, almonds, figs. Flavor ads a strong cocoa note while leaning molasses sweet with only very moderate earthy bitterness. Feel is viscous and body is heavy with very little carbonation. It’s pretty innocuous and nice though too heavily sweet without counterbalance or distraction to be enjoyably quaffable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark honey with copper when lit, then there’s a fleeting etched surface of light tan foam. Really light and flat looking for the style. Smells initially like the inside of an empty black olives can, then some sweet malt, a little bit of banana - not a particularly enjoyable nose. Flavor is booze, bitter, sweet malts, some banana, really boozey and chemical. Thin and lowly carbed for the style. This is not really firing on many/any cylinder for the style.

On Tap at the new "Yard House" in Meridian, ID Deep dark brown with a huge tan head. Warm soft dark malty aromas and flavors with intersting belgian yeast notes mixed in. A belgian sweet stout? Rich and smooth palatte. Very nice

Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 2. Thanks to Colin for this bottle. Hazy amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little soft and airy. Fine carbonation. Light, dry creamy malt. Dried fruits. Finishes dry and soft. It’s standard stuff but quite drinkable.
