A: poured a dark brown in color with a very thin head and left almost no lacing sticking to the head.
S: herbs were definitely noticeable on the nose immediately with some spices, seemed like it had dark fruits present, a hint of mint, and some malty sweetness. A bit of booze was there as well.
T: the herbs and spices were just as dominate on the palate but had a good silky chocolatey flavor to it. A hint of mint was coming through alogside slight pine notes.
M; the brew was medium to full in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a herbal, spice, mild chocolatey, and minty finish.
D: It had too much hernal character for my cup of tea but if that floats your boat then you'll like this one. it drank all right but I definitely took my time with it.

Thanks for tossing this my way scottbreaks! Split with the mrs into 2 bruery snifters. Had the BA version not too long ago and dug it.
a - brew pours dark purple/brown with a nice light brown head with really nice retention.
s- nose is fairly festive with gingerbread and old spice over plum.
t - leads with the belgian dark and finishes with the spices afternthey wash over they flavor mid sip.
m - a bit heavy handed on the carb for a bruery beer which aren't usually this fizzy. That said, this is way lighter than your average 11% brew.
o - overall not quite as nice as the BA version, but not bad. Happy to finally pick up where I left off in trying the beers from this series, but aside from the series, these are fairly run of the mill beers from an otherwise phenomenal brewery. I wouldn't hunt it down for any other reason.
