look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75

12 oz can with 20 March 2014 canning date stamped on the bottom.

Poured clear dark brown but sat near black and opaque in the glass. Over-sized frohy head had good retention.

Aroma: unpleasant off-odors dominate.

Flavor: much better than the aroma. Some off-notes but mainly a rather plain roasted malt flavor.

Feel: full, creamy smooth body. Medium carbonation.

O: Quality control isue in this reasonably fresh canned beer.

Serving type: can

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/20/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, pear, apple, anise, pepper, clove, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, brown bread, light coffee, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/roasted malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of raisin, pear, apple, anise, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, brown bread, light coffee, clove, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, pear, apple, anise, chocolate, cocoa, roast, toast, dark bread, light coffee, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant Belgian dark ale. Good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pours a dark kola hue with the creamiest four finger head and some bubbly lacing, the smell is pretty boring with aromas of dark malts and a tinge of earthy hops, the mouthfeel is light bodied and over carbonated with the same boring suspects on taste and overall not something id buy again and abit of a let down but sessionable cheers.
