#92/100 on the beers of fame. slowly but surely...

The body is pitch black and a soda pop fizz has faded to black. no head whatsoever.

The smell has so many sweet dark fruits, its unreal. loads of burnt sugar, charred oak, brown rum, and molasses.

The taste is scary good. The carbonation is very prickly, much more than I expected after the flat look. Plums, prunes, and molasses come to mind. The slight hint of booze is like a sweet dark rum, but in a good way. Its sweet from the molasses and brown sugar flavors. Not a ton of malt flavors shine through, but this is an amazing dessert beer for cooler days.

Pours nearly black with a bubbly light brown head that lasts and lasts. Smells of plum and yeast. Both carry over to the taste, along with alcohol. Just a touch of sourness. Medium mouth with lots of carbonation. The aftertaste doesn't linger long. This isn't a bad beer, but it's not my favorite style.

poured from a bottle into my favorite beer mug

P-foreboding, castle and winged horse, silver foil and letters. very classy 4.0

A- almost black, brown amber and murky. small tan head almost no lacing 3.75

S- yeast dark fruit, wheat and spice 4.0

T-yeast dark fruit cherry, spice and alcohol 4.0

M- bold and a little thick, quickly gives way to a sharp, and slow finish 4.0

D- heavy thick and a little too much 3.50

O- not my favorite interpretations of this style, but a well crafted beer, probably very enjoyable for someone with a more refined pallet to the style 4.25

Bought without much info on this one, very interesting and a cool part of my Belgian exploration ---- J
