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

Appearance: Nice dark brown, black color, with good tan head, leaves lacing

Smell: Dark, fruity, plums, Belgian yeast,

Taste: Again, fruity, plums and raisins, has nice Belgian yeast character, some nice roasty malts

Mouthfeel: Full body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good representation of the style, but not the best, and not the best from Kane. A solid offering, would drink again, but would rather search out other offerings from Kane.

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.
