Notes/Commercial Description:
Dark ruby brown Belgian style strong ale with complex flavors reminiscent of dried fruits. The sweet hints of raisin, fig and plum are accentuated with rock candy sugar then warmed away by the strength of the dry alcoholic finish.

On tap in a pint glass at Woodland's on 8/25/12

Dark brown appearance with a one finger head. Thin retention. Not much lace.

Dark bread and fruit aroma. Apple, banana, raisin, yeast, bubblegum. It has an upfront tangy flavor that tapers off quickly. Very bready. Moderate spice, clove and pepper. Earthy. Medium body with lively carbonation that dwindles after the beer opens up.

Overall impression: A decent beer, but nothing spectacular.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a chalice.

Aroma: Pepper phenols up front. A nice pleasant spiciness with bready undertones. No hop aroma.

Appearance: Dark amber pour with golden edges. A low white head dissipates quickly.

Flavor: Spicy pepper notes up front, clove, and low fig notes all flood the palate. Soft dark bread malt character lays the foundation. Balance is even with a slight nod to the bitterness due to the phenol character. Earthy hop bitterness. Finish is clean and bone dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Prickly high carbonation. No creaminess or astringency.

Overall impression: A velvet hammer. Dangerously drinkable with tons of Belgian character. Worthy of recognition.

Serving type: on-tap
