Quality beer, but nothing really special. This tastes like what I expected a dark beer from New Belgium would taste. Faint Belgian yeast taste in the background of a drinkable brown ale. Hints of wood, cinnamon, and fig. Smell is a little off out of the bottle - a bit glassy, but the mouthfeel and drinkability are high. I would file this one under a pleasing go-to beer. wouldn't bring it to a tasting, but I'd be happy with it most anytime I wanted to relax with a medium-bodied ale.
