Belgian Strong Dark Ale |  9.00% ABV

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.

Had on tap at Fat Head's in a snifter. Pours a hazy, darker brown, with a thin, almost non-existent head. Served colder than it should be.

Smell is fruity and sweet, with raisin, banana and spice notes.

Taste is mildly malty, with banana, raisin and fig notes, and hints of cloves. Improves as it warns.

Medium bodied, with a clean feel.

A decent brew, it is one you should order and let sit to warm to fully enjoy. Certainly a nice enough brew to sip on as my growler of Headhunter is being poured!

On tap at Fat Heads in Cleveland.

Poured a medium brown color with a good off-white head. Bit of a reddish hue to the beer. The nose brought forward quite a bit of dark fruits plus some caramel and a good amount of clove. General yeastiness there as well. The taste consisted of more clove plus some dates and figs. Light malt sweetness came through as well, complementing the spice. Mouthfeel was nice and full with good, low-level carbonation. Drinkability was quite good. A pretty impressive brew.

Pours a hazy deep amber to brown-ish color with a small light tan head. In the aroma, dark fruit and licorice. In the taste, licorice, dark fruit, especially sweet plum. A smooth and medium to light bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry to clean aftertaste. Hides the alcohol, a bit thin and lacking flavor and nose.

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.
