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.

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.
