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.

Served on tap at sazeracks in grand rapids in a goblet. Smells like sweet banana, dark brown but not opaque. Rich sweet toffee, a little banana and slight plum. Good mouthful with fine coronation, not quite as much body as I would expect, but it doesn't detract. Overall an excellent beer.

What a phenomenally world class Belgian ale. Smooth and perfectly consistent. This would stand against any strong Belgian ale out there. The only improvement I could suggest is a bit more complexity on the flavor profile. It doesn't really matter though as it's so smooth and so tasty. A real pleasure to drink. Lucky to have been able to get the chance.

Sampled on tap at Crunchy's in East Lansing as part of a taster tray. Pours a pretty deep brown color with amber highlights, with just a thin ring of a head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and a touch of roasted character, along with a good dose of dark fruit and lots of boozy alcohol.
Palate is very sweet up front. Caramel, honey, and dark fruit (plum, nectarine, dark cherry) notes are prevalent. Finish is nice and heavily fruity, almost like a fruit syrup, again with a lot of booze that imparts a good bit of heat. Body is velvety smooth and very easy drinking, especially for a beer this strong. For a beer that calls itself Belgian, though, it doesn't have very bubbly carbonation. This is a nice slow sipper, very enjoyable.

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.
