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

From 07/27/13 notes. Had on tap at the brewery in Ocean.

a - Pours a deep medium nut brown color with one inch of light tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, roasted notes, spices, Belgian yeast, cloves, fruity malts, and toasted malts. Nice bananas and yeast, very good nose.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, bananas, spices, pepper, Belgian yeast, cloves, chocolate, toasted malts, earthy notes, and light fruit. More spice and pepper than the nose, and more chocolate malts. A slight step down for me.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall a solid Belgian style dark ale. Bananas and roasted malts in the nose with more spice and chocolate in the taste. Pretty easy to drink, would have it again.

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.
