Very dark color. Big head. Caramely smell. Burned caramel taste, though it seems relatively dry. Tasty but not amazing.

On-tap at the Foundry, Northampton, MA.

A- Somewhat hazy chestnut brown with a preposterous light tan head to four fingers in a tulip. Great retention and massive piles of lace after each sip.

S- Toasty brown grains and spicy Belgian yeast. Lacking strength overall as I stress to find anything beyond the general theme.

T- Packs more punch at this juncture. Spicy yeast is the vehicle while raisin, dried fig, cherry, toasted nuts, grapes and deep amber candi sugar ride along. Tobacco and a roast hint of cocoa powder really round it out and add depth. Moderately sweet.

MF- Falls on the taste buds with a body towards the lighter side. Carbonation sort of low to medium and the texture is fizzy foamy. Light dark bitters.

Darker than most of the XMAS brews I have had in the past but certainly a welcome thing here. Drinks like a Belgian Brown rather than the Belgian Pale style it is listed as.
