4.49/5 rDev +6.4%
On tap at Hopvine in Seattle. In a snifter.
It appears a deep, dark, brackish ruby with a solid finger of off-white froth as a head.
Smells like bourbon, raisins, cherries, maple, and molasses. A tempting aroma.
It tastes pretty much exactly like it smells, but with the addition of a classically Belgian, bready finish. The flavor also has more vanilla, I think.
The feel isn't overly spritzy for a Belgian ale, which I like. Sweet and syrupy.
Really a lovely dark Belgian ale.

A- Poured from cask, this supposedly the last cask of this batch of La Petite Mort from the summer. Black Raven is releasing a new Bourbon La Petite Mort tomorrow which should be amazing. Anyways, to the beer!
Glass came to me with a light head and and left lots of bubbles around the sides. Lacing is alright. Color is a dark amber or maroon.
S- Very fruity like plums and pineapple and just of citrus. Very good smelling and the aging i am sure brought out a lot in this brew.
T- This has a nice woody flavor to it. All of the fruits from the nose come out on the palate. I also get a dose of hops on the back end which is just awesome.
M- Goes down and in very smooth. Cannot taste the high ABV at all which is nice.
D- At this ABV, it is dangerously drinkable. So smooth and good. I could start and finish my night with something like. Thanks Black Raven and can't wait to try the bourbon LPM.

Had this on tap at black raven and was really excited to try this!
Poured a dark rather clear beer with superb amber hints and a decent head into a tulip glass and due to the style i don't exactly know what i would pour this into if i had a bottle.... Nice 1/2 finger head that stuck around for a bit before fading
Smell was a bit funky with a touch of sour. A wbit sweet with spices and cloves.
Taste was sweet and malty with a bit of hops up front and a funky farm toward the back which made for an interesting brew with some weird twang to it..
Mouth was solid and well slid out for the expected style. I wasn't expecting anything too thick or over carbonated for the style... maybe a bit more carbonation but this works well..
Drink was well balanced and i really enjoyed it. a friend of mine said it was hoppy up front with some smoke in the back, but she was drunk =)
Overall a solid beer and i would get this again, but i would try a different style of glass just to check it out

Belgian Abbey Strong Brown 2011 release 7/14/2011 draft pour at the brewery.
Nice dark deep red/brown appearance.
Nothing significant on the nose that I could pick up.
Taste nutty, sweet, balanced.
Mouthfeel smooth and somewhat on the thin side.
Much fanfair from my favorite brewery left me a little disappointed. Drinkable alright but too much so. I expected more.
I'm glad I tried it but wouldn't go out of my way for it again.
