4.06/5 rDev +6.6%
On tap at Fat Cam's, served in a 16oz tulip 3/4 full. Pours with little head for which to pull any great nose from.
It was darker and in thereso cloudier/ thicker than I have been used to with heavy Belgians, but this brewery is known for strange and outrageous beer.
Not a great smell at all, but I did catch a bit of Belgian yeasty pop behind the sweet, malty forefront.
Just as I expected the malt was heavy at first, but the best parts shined through immediately afterward. For all that I thought was lacking in the beginning of this experience, it was quickly wiped away. A light nutty and plum shined through it all.
There was a heavy and velvety feel to this one. Thin on the bubbles and a smooth finish with an aftertaste that was a well planned out trip down beer lane, that I couldn't miss the rest of the way down.
Once this hit the table I hand already counted it out. My favorite style of beer was once again complimented with another great entry to the category. If you can find this, pick it up.

3.78/5 rDev -0.8%
12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Greenbush Brewing Co., this one listed as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a dark burnt orange colored body with some nice sediment floating in the glass. Three fingers of beige foam for a head that falls to about a finger. Fat spotty lacing. For some reason, I thought it would be lighter in color, but it looks very nice.
S - Smell is comprised of the usual suspects - candied caramel maltiness, Belgian yeast, banana, clove, dough, pepper. A simple, yet pleasant aroma.
T - The taste follows the nose - candied sugars, caramel, green apple, pear, banana, white grape. Lots of lovely yeast derived fruitiness on this one. It's very nice, but I was hoping for more grassy / herbal flavors. No alcohol heat or burn; the 9.30% abv is extremely well hidden.
M - The feel is slightly heavy. Dry on the finish. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation. Some lingering fruitiness / stickiness on the palate. Very easy drinking for the high abv.
Overall, a nicely done but average representation of the style from Greenbush. Doesn't really bring anything new or exciting to the table, but it's certainly enjoyable and very drinkable.
Greenbush 1825 ---4/5.

Smoky, lingering notes on the nose. Great drinking beer. Rich amber/brown color. Smooth and creamy but plenty of flavors in there to keep you busy guessing. At 9.3% ABV, it could be a dayender or a nice launch for the evening... 2nd bottle even better.
Reviewer's note: goes very well with an aged cheddar! Love the rich caramel brown color, too.
