4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured 750 ml into a brandy glass. Dark brown with reddish tint and a thin yet persistent head. Earthy hopped nose, and a dry palate with nice carbonation that hits quickly at the top of the tongue. The taste is difficult to describe, but woody notes prevail with a roasted quality that rounds out the flavor. Very unique and enjoyable beer.
Not a bad Belgian. I don't hate it.

Backlog, bottle split with Pat in ’11. Pours a thick brown color with small to medium head. Notes of vanilla bean, fresh bread, toffee, malt, and sweet dried fruits. Mouthfeel was medium to full with a warming finish. Enjoyable belgian from Stillwater Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2017
Medium brown, tart and maybe a fair bit of coffee. With a tartness, it’s not my favourite. stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
On tap takeover at Darby’s Gastown in Vancouver. A dark brown beer with a bit of off-white head and faintly fruity nose. Dried fruit notes up front, trace of roasted malt in the background. A bit sweet with low bitterness. 3.9 Ferris (16492) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2017
Draft - Dark roast and dark cocoa notes. Jet brown with a small beige head. Dark fruit, dark sweet notes and a long nice finish.

Nice, dark, slightly musty, dry pour. 7.4% is a bit high, but still pleasant for a Belgian Ale. JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 29, 2017
Dark, slightly woody hops. Somewhat flat in feel. Mild pine. Damn lent starts in 4 minutes… Good by beer. 3/11.

Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Bitter vinous fruit nose (like white grape) along with some roasted malt. Flavor starts with bitter fruit rind, then turns to malty roastiness with some chocolate before a burnt coffee finish. rumore (758) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 18, 2016
From the bottle. Pours rather dark with average quantity of cappuccino-coloured foam. Aroma is intense of licorice, fruits under spirits. Body is medium-dense. Taste is not too sweet, with some bitterness coming out afterwards. Finish is dry. MarcoDL (5379) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Draft at beertemple. Aroma of caramelised malt, licorice and yeast. Flavor of yeast, caremelised malt, licorice and soy-ish malt. Too much licorice for me.
