A- hazy amber with dark yellow around the corners of the glass. The head rose out of the beer kind of like soda pop head does, with medium sized bubbles that are white and fizzy as all get out. This left a considerable level of lacing on the glass

S- Chocolate, rum raisen and toast.

T- Sweet, with plenty of malt. Boy oh boy does this beer touch on malt. Not in a bad way but i feel they could have smoothed it over with a little bit more of a hop presence. I got dark cherries, chocolate, and burbon in the mouth. There is a nice amount of carbonation that left a little quickly but in the end, laced pretty nicely so you can sniff and drink at the same time. mm mmm.

M- Medium bodied until you swish it around, then it gets chunky!

D- This a nice beer and I recommend it to someone who has never tasted a beer that has been brewed with raisens in it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Very dark brown in color and only a bit of light gets through. Brussels lacing. A quarter inch thick head of khaki covered foam rests on top. Aroma of Belgian yeast and dark Belgian candy sugar is what I'm getting in the nose. The flavor is of dark Belgian candy sugar,dark malt,ands bit of tart Belgian yeast on the finish. Mouth is a bit chewy and sticky.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml corked and caged bottle purchased from BevMo in Menlo Park, CA. Shared with Frosty and Rich.

Pours a hazed, but firm brownish amber hue, with a full and frothy head of beige that sits pretty persistently. Frothy lace forms in sludgy streaks. Solid body and very form carbonation which forms in rivulets up the glass. Looks good.

Nose is slightly spicy, with a raisin and orange-peel character, but it's actually pretty muted overall. Slight pepper characters come around as well, especially as it warms. There's actually not a lot of sweetness or richness to it: more like the yeast has dried it out as well as adding all those lovely spicy estery characters.

Taste is similar, but with a smoothness that suggests a bit of body, even though the sweetness is still quite absent. Firm brown-sugar flavours are present without the ultimate sweetness, and the esters pick up a little on the back, giving a bit more of that spicy fix. Finish is actually rather smooth, and the alcohol is well hidden. Feel is clean but rich. Nice.

Overall, yeah, this is tasty stuff, if not as complex as it might have been. There's plenty of body, which is good, and a nice about of spice. Some extra sweetness would help, but overall, it's still a really nice beer.
