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.

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.
