Had this on tap at 90 acres Culinary Center located at Natirar State Park. What an exceptional brew. I had several of these and was wanting more but held back so I could actually walk out of the place. Deep dark in color with a rich Belgium triple aroma. The mouthfeel was near perfect and the taste was flat out amazing! I would buy this, store this, drink this anytime I could. Just a stellar brew by Kane.

Bottom Line: A must try! seek this out...period!

Ok had this again, well I rated it even higher! love this beer!

Served on-tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours an opaque very dark brown (almost black) in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some cola brown + dark amber highlights. The beer has a thin (slightly less than a quarter finger tall) light beige head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal to light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of chocolate, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, and just a hint of spices.

T: Upfront there is a fair amount of malts sweetness in this brew with notes of dark fruits, candi sugar, and toffee. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of Belgian yeast and just a hint of spiciness. Lingering sweetness and minimal amounts of bitterness.

M: Just heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Another really great brew from Kane - I have been a longtime fan of BSDAs and this is a top notch example. Definitely s brew I would recommend - easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

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

Appearance: Arrives with a fudge brown color capped by a modest head that leaves just a few strands of lacing

Smell: Graham cracker, chocolate, dark fruit and spicy Belgian yeast elements

Taste: Surprisingly dry for a BSDA, up front, though there is some graham cracker, chocolate and dark fruit; in the mid-palate, the spices kick in nicely and the finish brings a return of the graham cracker

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice brew; lack the depth of dark fruit flavors (and sweetness) of the great Belgians but the graham cracker is a nice touch
