This beer has a great smooth flavor, and a gorgeous deep amber color. It doesn't have that high alcohol kick that most beers at this ABV level give you, so it finishes nicely on the pallet. I would highly reopens this beer to anyone.

Maybe it's the black label that leads to darker expectations, but it's a brown amber color, slightly hazy. Long aromatic scent of roasted grain and caramel candy. Attractive swirly foam in the tall glass.

Plenty strong though not tasting of alcohol. This is more like a winter ale with plenty of roasted grain and a spicy undertone. Hops are quite understated, though there is a moderate bitter burn. The touch of Belgian yeastiness doesn't bloom into the dry intensity. Barely any sediment. A little hot at the finish just before your tongue goes numb.

Rather pleasant sipping beer. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

First review 8/18/2011 3.15

A: Poured a burgundy color with good carbonation leaving a nice dirty white cap

S: Dark fruits, sweet sugar, light booze

T: Starts off with a dark fruit element; plums, hint of raisins, some caramel perhaps, but the taste quickly fades and it becomes sordove syrupy and boring

M: Medium to big body, sweet, sticky but lacking in complexity and nothing to make it shine

O: Not to bad and worth a drink
///

2011 vintage sampled today via Red Hot-Tacoma

A: Poured a deep brownish with purple hues, small dirty white cap, some bubbles and minimal lacing

S: Purple/red rapes, candy sugar, figs and plums. Very pleasant.

T: This beer really mellowed out over a year. Dark fruits remain dominant and prominent; grapes, figs, some caramel and plums with residual candy sugar are the highlights. A little booze and spice sting lingers throughout but it also has a smooth creaminess to it. The finish has a light sugary element.

M: Bigger bodied, sweet and sugar, plenty of dark fruits coat the palate

O: I believe this beer needed some time to work itself out. It's pretty good, still a little messy and think it could go for another year or two!
