3fourths (9314) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2017
October 07 16 bottle pours mostly clear pale brown with a lasting cap of foam. Malt and ester play as clove, raisin, tobacco, brown sugar, and a dusty flour and leather / old book character emerges. Its full-bodied and plump in the mouth with strong sugar pushed back by well-matched acidity. Alcohol is initially well-hidden, showing mostly in the finish as mild heat, with some vibrant phenols exciting the palate further. Kind of reminds me of Chimay, though richer and more layered. The mouth feel and carbonation are very close to authentic abbey beer, and the Belgian special b malt character is front and center.

From bottle. Knowing the cost, maybe review is a bit harsher than it would be had it been priced lower. Good color and smell, but taste was too malty given the flavor profile. Not terrible, but not something Ill likely try again.

(En ft la source): Excellent contrle de la levure, th noir, tarte aux pommes et cannelle. Le corps est mi-liquoreux, mi-arien. Dans lensemble, assez impressionnant leur travail avec les phnols.

On tap at the brewpub where it is listed as "Belgian Strong Dark" at 10.25% ABV and 38 IBU, Dark clear, copper-brown body.topped by a semi-durable white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Lightly sweet with plenty of fig and date tones. Some chocolate in the finish. Moderate complexity for style. Smooth, medium body.

beastiefan2k (3880) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2016
A dark brown beer, medium clarity. Swwet raisin bread aroma, liquid small sweetness without being too much but a bit more than needed. Flavor is more compact with a lightly grainy and buckwheat malt character. Needs some time to mellow a bit. Sweet raisin aftertaste. Not estry and no alchy. So, pretty damn good.
