On-tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, 2012 version. On to the beer:

The base of 10 Commandments is a good Belgian Strong Dark Ale, but the twist here is there appears to be a potent spiciness to it, which to me tasted like ginger. Luckily, the base is strong enough to mitigate some of the spice and keep as an enjoyable beer to drink with a meal. Expect a profile of prunes, ginger, figs, and a kiss of liquor, with the addition of a dark bodied beer with good head retention, a fun smell, and a beer that's a little different flavor-wise per style.

1.86/5  rDev -52.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

appearance: nice rich brown opaque color, correct for the style.
smell: stale diet coke?? this was so strong i wasn't able to isolate any other scents..
taste: my palate was overwhelmed by the unholy trinity of sour, alcohol and bitter. I was not able to even try and pick out any distinguishing flavors..
mouthfeel: probably about the right amount of viscosity and carbonation for the style
overall: perhaps i should try this again??? Maybe i had a bad representation of this beer??

Serving type: on-tap
