An awesome mellow taste. The head is awesome. Although the ABV for this is very high you will not realize until much later. Drink in moderation. Not sure if this is still a seasonal beer. DM would make a batch on occasion and they would run out very quickly.

Had on-tap at Dragonmead.

Appearance: Black. No head on my beer at all. Kind of like black water or something. But let's be honest, appearance matters not. I mean... it's nice, but... you know.

Smell: Prune/fig/grapes... dark fruit, dark fruit, dark fruit. Sweet and tart. Pleasing on the nose and very inviting. At 11%, that's not there at all. Also, this beer doesn't have that almost overly sweet aroma that some others from the style have.

Taste/feel: Exactly as the smell is, but that tartness is more obvious, as you'd expect. Sweet, but not too much so. Again, dark fruits all around. Maybe a slight sort of spiciness, but I don't know where that's coming from. I was told this beer had a clear alcohol presence, but I didn't notice it. The warmth, sure, but nothing in the taste. Definitely a bigger sort of beer. Sweet, tasty, and a sipper.

My favorite I've had from Dragonmead, I'd say, and it seems that I'm not alone. A must-try if you visit the brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark mahogany almost black. Completely opaque. A finger of a tan head that fades quickly and leaves very little behind.

Smell: bananas, dark fruit and amber candi sugar.

Taste: opens with a strong yeasty belgian taste. Dark fruits, mostly plum. Amber candi sugar sweetness. Small banana taste.

Mouthfeel: super dry. Heavy and warm

Overall: a very good and slightly unique example. I haven't tasted or smelled such strong banana in a belgian dark and it works quite well. Very well balanced and low alcohol taste for be strength.
