Pours out a convoluted looking brown with almost no head to it. Aroma was of twigs, berries, actually reminded me of a better smelling kvass in a weird kind of way. Plenty of dark fruit aroma as well.

Lots of belgian dark sugar is noticeable on the first sip. Alcohol presence noted. Plums. Dark fruit. Belgian yeast not overpowering. Carbonation better on the palate than it was in the appearance, kept the beer somewhat lively. Totally made for sipping on a cool evening. Dough and nuts together at last.

On tap at Beer Revolution.
