Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-chestnut color with a large foamy orange-beige head. The aroma had a whole lot going on, starting sweet and nutty and possessing notes of ripe cherries, port, wood, and cocoa. The flavor was equally complex with a tart and tangy base with solid notes of black cherry, molasses, sugar, wood, port wine, pineapple and cocoa. Amazingly complex. The finish was long nutty cherry and cocoa. Full bodied. Amazing.

The raisins are a huge part of this beer’s taste, but they’re not the only taste that’s there. A really big beer that will take you for a ride on the delicious train. Anyone a fan of fruity notes in a Belgian style beer should pick this one up.

Bevuta alla spina, colore oro marrone con schiuma beige compatta e persistente. Al naso ha profumi di frutta scura e pane tostato. Al palato uva passa, miele con un tocco di pane tostato. Molto piacevole la dolcezza dell’ uvetta passita, sentori anche di prugne secche e albicocche disidradate. Piacevole il calore dell’alcol nella gola, birra corposa, non smetterei mai di berla......buonissima

22oz bomber from Shaw’s. Pours a translucent dark copper body with a thin film of quickly dissipating tan head. Raisin, date, nut, brown sugar, with a touch of pith and citrus in the aroma. Raisin, date, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, toffee and coffee toward the finish. Medium in body with ample carbonation. Very drinkable for the style, abv, and complexity. A very good quad, tasty, balanced, complex, and drinkable for the style. Another slam-dunk from Smuttynose!
