This beer is a Belgian Dark Strong, black in color, it has aromas of rich dry malt and a slight caramel sweetness. Rich and smooth there is not any bitterness to this full bodied beer. The high alcohol level in this beer provides some balance of it’s malty palate.

I'm a sucker for belgian ale's so I had to try this when I was at Kuhnhenn's last night. Served in a tulip.

A: Is a cloudy, basically opaque dark brown, almost black color with minimal head, limited to a thick tan ring holding on to the rim of the glass followed by some lacing.

S: Smells phenomenal, dark fruits, bananas in particular, plums, brown sugars, yeast, barley, malts

T: Tastes phenomenal as well, flavors well balanced with the ABV, smooth flavor, very sweet, brown sugars, fruity, banana being the most discernible to me, belgian yeast, malts, warmth of the alcohol as well

M: Very smooth, rich beer right here, carbonation is on the lower side, great for me, very wholesome beer, good balance of flavors

O: Overall, this was a great beer, good representation of the style, though I have had better, this was still top notch and a reasonable price too, I was very pleased and would of course have this again.

Serving type: on-tap

Served at the Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice 2012 from a 9L Salmanazar into some plastic tasting glasses then had later on in a tulip.

Dark brown body with some deep red hues, no head and no lacing to mention. Nose has dark fruits, bread, candi sugar and some liqueur candies. Taste has candied dark fruits, licorice, liqueur, a bit bready and quite sweet all around. Medium full feel, alcohol is evident. Sticky on the palate.

Bottle courtesy of Drake. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a medium brown with a short off-white head. Nose has some dark fruits, bread, and banana. Light carame-toffee in the background. Flavor is malty with some dark fruits and moderate sweetness. Medium body and light carbonation. Interesting.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a near-black with very little khaki head that remains as a thin ring with no lacing.

S: Tart and sour cherry aromas dominate at first followed by sweet breads, candy sugar, and subtle roasted malt notes.

T: Tart fruit up front here followed by some roasted malt and slight acetic flavors. The finish is a bit roasted and tart.

M: Medium body with low carbonation, the tartness saves it from being too watery.

O: Perhaps this was an infected bottle with the acetic and sour notes, though it was not over-carbonated like most infected beers. It tastes more like a sour stout than any sort of Belgian style. Not bad, though not particularly enjoyable, either.
