A - Pours a very deep amber with three fingers of creamy tan head. Head has good retention and leaves a bit of lacing.

S -- Candi sugar, nice dark fruits, some Belgian yeast, a bit of chocolate. The brewery describes this as a hybrid Belgian ale. I'm assuming they mean a hybrid between a dubbel and a bsda based on the aroma.

T -- Candi sugar up front, with Belgian yeast, some chocolate and dark dried fruits. A bit of spice leads into a rather dry, slightly bitter finish. Nice.

M -- Medium slightly sticky mouthfeel with a semi-dry finish.

O - An interesting and tasty Belgian style ale. Greenbush seems to have a good handle on some diverse styles, which is a good foundation for a new brewery. I look forward to trying more from them.

On draft at Farmhouse, served in a 12 oz. Duvel-esque glass.

Appears black with tawny brown edges in the dim light, rusty auburn and opaque when backlit. Ample head of tan foam, lacing some initially. Lasting retention, fades to a thin broken skim.

Yeasty phenolics, some apple sweetness and spiciness, caramelized sugars.

Bitter earthy taste, a little toasty, finishing dry. Alcohol isn't completely hidden, mouthfeel is a little rough with coarse carbonation and slight alcohol presence. Overall its warming on a cool night, and pretty good flavor wise, but not one i'd seek out again.

Bottle 3 from the Advent Calendar. Bottled 11.20.14 and enjoyed from a tulip.

A: Pours very dark brown with some dark red undertones

S: Sweet candi sugar, dark red fruits, molasses, baked apples

T: Rich dark red fruits, brown sugar, maybe some chocolate, Christmas-ale-type spicing, and a very sweet finish.

M: Heavy feeling and vinous

O: A nice beer in a style that I'm not a fan of.
