c&c bottle into westmalle chalice.

the cork flies off and almost busts a light bulb, like some shit out of Das Boot. the head is enormous. that is basically all there is to this beer, a creamy cream coloured head. the body is a deep slightly turbid brown. Im going to bump up the appearance grade a small bit because the head is so amazing in texture and colour. the nose is boozy, slightly dry, and not very spicy or fruity sweet. the taste is a sharp bitterness of hops and booze being balanced out by sweet malts. body is too carbonated.

On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.

Pours deep amber with a white head that soon reduces but leaves nice patterns of sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma: intriguing fruity (dark fruit) aroma with a some medium malt base and alcohol esters

Flavor: slightly more yeasty/funky than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Good sweet/bitter balance.

Feel: near medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.

O: lacks the complexity and well hidden ABV of fine Belgian versions.

Serving type: on-tap

3.89/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The best part about this beer is the pour. The deep, burnt red color and nearly three-finger head make this very pretty to look at.

Smells like an assortment of dried fruits. This would probably go great with a fruit cake or figs. Cheese too; let's not forget cheese.

Taste is where this beer kinda loses me. Nothing standout here. Good balance, but nothing to bring it to the next level.
