3.28/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

on tap at the brewery - served in taster

Pours an opaque darkness with a thinner layer of beige head. Coating of film rests on top, leaving a few spots of lacing.

Spices and apples in the nose with pears and dark fruit. Burnt sugar, bread crust, Belgian yeast, alcohol warmth.

Sweet and spicy up front with cinnamon, coriander and apples. Pears, raisins and dates with some burnt sugar sweetness. Full malty backbone with dark fruits and boozy warmth.

Fuller medium body, well carbonated, sticky and full on the tongue. This is decent, but the apples seem to overpower some of the more delicate flavors.

Serving type: on-tap

3.64/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A4 a deep red almost black, 2 fingers of head
S3.5 a grape like scent, boozy, malty
T3.75 this is a typical Belgian quad profile with a weird fruity bitterness.
M3.5 full body, boozy warmth, medium carbonation
O3.5 not really my style, but definitely not bad. I enjoy their iPa's much more though

32 oz Growler from Spirits Unlimited

Appearance: A nice dark amber brown color, not too much head or lacing, but I think that might be due to the nature of the growler

Smell: Sweet with apples, plums, nice malts, and some yeast spice

Taste: Fruity, with apple being the forefront, some plum, raisins, and a beautiful yeast signature that I can't quite describe

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, low (but appropriate) carbonation

Overall: I think the only thing lost to the growler was some head. It still had appropriate carbonation for drinkability, though I wouldn't want to save this growler for a second day. First taste brought back memories of the first time I tried Ommegang's Abbey Ale. This is fantastic, and I personally think Kane has a bright future ahead if they can pull off stuff like this regularly. This brew just solidified my decision to make 2014 the year of the local brewery.

Serving type: growler
