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.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Light burgundy brown color with some murk. A patch of thin surface foam is all the head it wears.

Wine-y dark fruits like cherry, currant, blackberry, raisin, and grape. Almost a burlap aroma with a hint of tobacco. Quite nice and fruity.

Yeasty, fruity, and attenuated. Juggles between woody bitterness, dried fruit sap, and toast malt simplicity. Hanging with candi sugars and a sear of alcohol burn. A traditional Belgian yeast flavor complements without being showy. Too thin in the taste, however. Late cola finish with some herbals and spice coming through.

A tad flat. Body is pretty soppy, but close to medium. Not ideal, but okay.

Nothing killer in this representation of a Belgian dark. Enjoyably robust in the malts, however.

This poured out as a medium brown color with a cream colored head on top. The smell of the beer is on the sweeter side. There is some nice fruity notes as well as some bready yeast in there too. The taste of the beer is along the lines of a Quad but not quite as fruity or sweet. There is a nice element of Candi Sugar in there and some subtle yeast flavors. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth, lightly carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall this beer is pretty good.
