look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
