boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle... Poured opaque, near black with a thick, long lasting, frothy, tan head. Such a dark beer for such a mellow, estery palate. Vinous with plums, grapes, prunes and other dark fruits like cherry skins. Fermented malt and yeast tones. A fruit juice sweetness with loads of yeast spices and fruit esters. Highly drinkable with low hop flavor and bitterness.

Some sweetness in the aroma. Looks okay. This was too sugary for my taste and a bit flat almost as well. Even started to get a bit of headache before finishing the beer. Totally disappointed, especially at the price.

ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2012
A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy chocolate head atop. The head fades fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate and dark fruits, with some wheat, and some Belgian yeasts. T - Starts off some roasted dark chocolate and sweet dark fruits with a bit of wheat. Through the middle, some oats come through with the Belgian yeast flavor getting stronger as well. The finish is a mix of chocolate, a bit of dark fruit, some wheat, and and Belgian yeast funkiness. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced with a good depth of balance. Really nice blend of chocolate and dark fruit with the yeast character.

Pours a dark brown, aroma of alcohol, yeast, and spice. Warming alcohol comes through on the initial taste and mouthfeel. Relatively crisp yet boozy. Subtle dark fruit (raisin) flavors come through on the finish. Paired with an afternoon BBQ, it held up well against various dishes and remained a nice compliment after warming. Drinks better paired than alone for my tastes
