12oz bottle 6/16/17 (Binny’s Montgomery)-42° in Trappist Glass-Pours chocolate with a small tan head. Aroma of fig, dark fruits, roasted malt, and raisins. Taste of the same with caramel and yeast coming in. This full bodied brew is well balanced and easy to sip. Nice brew. glennmastrange (2854) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs and a little cooked orange for the hops, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with bourbon, vanilla, toffee, raisin and faint spices in the background. Head is average sized, frothy/creamy, beige with thick yet slippery lacing, and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown with some light colored particles. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. Nice Belgian Strong Ale with a deep and complex aroma and a well balanced flavor. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2017

Very smooth dark Belgian ale, dances in your mouth. Great flavors, etoh well hidden. ajnepple (6417) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2017
On tap at Hops & Pie. Murky brown appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruity esters, Belgian yeast, herbal spices, roasted malts and light sage. Similar flavor, adding hints of caramel/toffee and burnt sugar. Mild bitterness balanced by a light malty sweetness. Medium plus body with a light dry finish. Interesting.

Bottle. Dark ruby pour. Exceptional retention in an off-white head. Nose is fuckloads of dried fruit, vanilla, toffee. Mouth is a tad watery considering the nose. Medium sweetness. Lot of fruit. Touch boozy. Belgiany. Solid. I’d totally share this one with her. rosskyle (653) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2017
12oz bottle. Dark plum color with a tan head. Malt raisin aroma. Raisin spice sweet flavour. Medium heavy body.

B+. Pours a black color with khaki head. Flavors of dark fruit. Surprisingly drinkable for how dark it is onceblind (9399) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2017
Deep heavy dark brown hue with a sticky light beige head that leaves tons of lace. Bright raisin and fig aromas on the dark Belgian nose that’s slightly toasty malty. Smooth dark Belgian fruity flavor up front that’s predominantly raisin and alcohol phenols and finishes dry and plummy and dusty. Seems disjointed and sugary but with a boozy body and too-dry finish.

Sampled on draft at the answer. Clear brown pour with small light tan head. Boozy nose with noted of plum and raisin. Flavor is not as alcoholic, but still some booziness and a fair amount of toffee, raisin, and brown sugar. Big old sweet maltbomb. Maybe back in the day I would have been attracted to this, but not now.
