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.

Serving type: on-tap

4.26/5  rDev +1.2%
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.

Serving type: on-tap
