Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, opaque in the glass with a thin tan head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma is similar to an American strong ale; dark, almost toasty malt, dark dried fruit, chocolate, raisin bread, rum, sweet. Flavor is spicey dark fresh and dried fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel malt; develops stronger Belgian spice and yeast character with cherry chocolate notes, finishing with cedar, rum and an odd burst of clove. Medium bodied, not quite as heavy as the color might indicate. An offbeat take on a Belgian dark, with some very American strong characteristics in the malt and fruit. The clove at the end was cool at first, but became a bit intrusive after a few drinks. The ABV is covered by the flavors, but this is still quite warming. Interesting and flavorful, but seems to be all over the place in flavors, which could be a bit more integrated. Spices made it appropriate for drinking right now as a winter warmer. Glad I tried it, but may be too much for the high ABV as a regular drinking ale. The stratofortress design on the label was dramatic and appropriate for a big, aggressive ale, but odd for a Belgian inspired beer.

A: Poured a deep brownish purple color with red and crimson highlights with a small tan cap

S: Loads of dark fruit, big sugary sweetness, light rum and almost no cedar

T: Has a big dark fruit, candy sugary sweetness and loads of residual sugar. A bit syrupy a little rum, not much on the cedar.

M: Thin bodied, over carbonated, cloyingly sweet

O: I detect a young beer with sweet residual sugar, gassy and I barely finished this beer.

Serving type: on-tap
