Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark deep chestnut hue with a thin halo that faded to leave light lacing and wisps.
S - Aromas of Belgian sweet malts and esters, dark candy sugar, not much tartness but a genetic berry fruit. Light chocolate. Solid nose, interesting.
T - Taste is esters, dark sugars, booze, light chocolate, booze, slight metallic twinge, genetic fruitiness not tart but fruit, lightly syrupy sweet malts.
M - Mouthfeel is a syrupy mess, heavy, boozy.
O - Overall the nose was fun but everything else is a mess, heavy, syrup, meh.

bottle picked up locally cause i'm a sucker for this series and at this point, why start skipping them? enjoyed from a 5 oz brewery taster...stemless snifter glass.
a - a semi transparent mahogany brown with a thin bubbly head that bubbles away no real lace to speak of.
s - nose is sweet. dark berry and just sweetness. smells like a lot of the american takes on a BSDA...missing the lush creaminess of the classics.
t - definitely sweet...as the nose suggested. hints of brown sugar behind some dark fruit and berry.
m - extraordinarily thin. lacking the creaminess and body that a good BSDA needs.
o - overall, the bruery makes some amazing beers, and they also make lots of meh beers...because they make SO many different beers. there hasn't really been a superstar yet in this series and it makes sense since these are all one offs. i doubt time will do magic on this one, hopefully tame down the sweetness....all in all for some dumb reason i feel the need to try all of these and the BA versions (some of those are pretty solid) and every time i consider stopping and then just go for the tick. oh well, if you aren't ticking or collecting the set, i'd pass on this beer. not a drain pour...but that's about all i can say about it.
