3.86/5 rDev +2.4%
on-tap @ Belmont Station.
taster glass, from notes.
"Boysen is a dark, strong, malt forward Belgian ale with dark fruits added during maturation. Chocolate notes create a foundation for the boysenberries and yeast esters to ride on."
Black, with a creamy, light tan head.
The aroma has berries upfront with a light chocolate backing.
Again, berries upfront in taste, but with a more prominent/balanced dark chocolate malt profile.
Medium+ body with mild, prickly carbonation.
The boysenberries really blend nicely with the chocolate malt character. The ABV is really noticeable, despite being so high.

on-tap @ the brewery
Served in a Commons tulip - very dark, minimal head. Nicely layered beer - chocolate, berry, yeasty esters, booze. I thought the boysenberry was well played and was a nice play on the style. Would have grabbed a bottle, but this is tap only i believe. Nice stuff.
