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.

First beer from this well received brewery. The beer pours a very dark nearly black ruby highlighted brown. There is a very thin milky tan colored collar that clings to the glass.

The scent is of rains, plum, molasses and a hint of cocoa. Very enjoyable scent that comes off as belgian based, but uniquely American. It does lack in complexity of the finest of its style.

The taste begins with a cocoa bitterness and touch of alcohol. It moves to a sweet flavor dominated by by dark fruits, especially plum. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light lively carbonation.

Altogether a very good and enjoyable beer that lacks the depth and complexity of the finest examples of the style. That said I would enjoy having this again.
