pours a near black with creamy head, retains for a bid. some lacing draped around the glass.

heavy on the belgian yeast. lots of bread, yeast, and banana.

taste is much different, in a good way. nice sweetness, light tartness from the black currants. deep in the back is the belgian back bone.

body is moderate, feels a bit light. carbonation fills this out and brings it to life.

very pleasant. the black currants worked out great. i typically am not into belgian darks but i am a sucker for black currants, glad i checked this out.

Dark brown with a reddish hue around the edges. Minimal rusty brown colored head.

The currants really pop in the scent along with blackberry. There's a touch of chocolate and the aroma reminds me of a port.

There's a nice tartness to the flavor along with some bready malts and dark fruit. Unfortunately, there's a musty cardboard aftertaste that's off-putting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

This was a decent beer, but the musty aftertaste was a major drawback for me.

Bottle dated 1/2012.

A: Pours a dark brown with crimson highlights under a quarter inch thick fine tan head which slowly fades leaving spotty lace.

N: Yikes! Earthy mushrooms, dark fruit, bready yeast. Somewhat unpleasant.

T: Whew, dark currants, yeast, slight chocolate and coffee, some nutty notes and a slight metallic quality.

M: Moderate body and carbonation. Slightly sweet and yeasty finish.

O: Well, gave this a second try and still not thrilled.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice.

Plan B pours out a very deep brown with a small head. The aroma is interesting, it's yeasty, chocolatey, tart, and sour. The taste is tart and fruity at first, with more sour aspects coming through on the finish. Some of the chocolate comes through too, along with some roasted malts. Unique and tasty. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and medium-bodied, with a dry finish. The drinkability is pretty good. Overall, this is an enjoyable sour Belgian strong ale with a strong fruit component. Recommended.
