Split with rudzud.
Pretty much no head, nice legs but no lacing or head, semi clear cherry maroon color.
Nose dark Belgian malts and dank candi sugar, little candy syrup, little jammy berry fruit like a boisonberry blueberry gooseberry candied blend, touch of cocoa nibs, and choc, not a ton.
Taste sweet syrupy mess, candy Sugar, syrupy candy and candy sugar, little Belgian malts dark malts, big booze, generic berry fruit, little toffee caramel, etc. Just a ton of sweet characters blending to a generic mess of sweetness, candy generic berry fruit.
Mouth is fuller bod but a syrupy mess, fair hot booze, decent but lighter carb, syrupy mess.
Overall a bit of a disappointment.

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.

Nose - with sweet fruity accents, the aroma is quite enjoyable the moment the brew hits the glass.
Taste - roasted malts, slightly spicy, and, in line with the nose, lots of sweet fruits, with dark cherries mixed in. I’m also getting a bit of chocolate.
Mouthfeel - medium to heavy, leaving behind a slight tart pucker. But very mellow for a strong dark brew. Inoffensive, but enjoyable.
Not the most adventurous or boundary pushing ale I’ve had from The Bruery, but it certainly was the most enjoyable.

A: Opaque light brown with a beige head that settled to a paper thin veil . Virtually no lace.
S: Upfront notes of gooseberry that provide a slightly tart nose. Notes of raisin and fresh apricot. A hint of booze.
T: Not much tartness. Gooseberry comes through as a moderately sweet citrus flavor. Notes of dried fruit including apricots and raisins. Nice finish with some faint notes of chocolate. The booze manifests itself just enough, and the beer is big enough the withstand this.
M: Well carbonated and smooth. Some warmth from the alcohol.
D: Highly drinkable and a nice divergence from the typical "winter warmer" with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. I would characterize this one as less spicy, and more sweet citrus and berry notes backed a solid belgian dark ale.
