Fairly dark burgundy brown. Overpour skips out on any head. A ring is all I have.

Autumnal spices, clove, rum raisin, light fig, dark honey, booze, and yeast cake. Quite the cross between malty/spicy fall ales and Belgian strong darks.

Heavy clove, licorie, dark rum, honey, cocoa, spicy booze, raisin, fig, and light coffee notes. Quite nice if it weren't for a super-chalky yeast character. It really dries up the feel despite a prominent sweetness in flavor. Strange juxtaposition. Sticky as hell. Carbonation has a nice burble to it.

A fantastically unique BSDA. Never had one with so much of a pumpkin ale bent to it. Recommended.

Pours very dark burgundy with very little head as to be expected of a high alcohol belgian strong ale. Smells malty with hints of tart cherry. Little carbonation. Tastes malty with flavors of cherry, clove, and plum. Hides the 9.7% alcohol very well. Overall a very unique and flavorful beer. Classified as a belgian strong ale, but like most draai laag beers breaks the mold of traditional beer styles and is worth giving a try. Recommended if you tastes lie with maltier, less hoppy beers.

St Angus

Pours a deep brownish amber with a white head and lacing. A careful swirl brings the head back gracefully. An excellent presentation.

The aroma has spice, brown sugar, and molasses with a Belgian yeast edge.

In the taste, rich sugary malts, fig, date, molasses, earthy cinnamon, light herbal hops, pepper, clove, nuts and vanilla.

A most delicious, full bodied ale with a medium to high carbonation. Clean finish.

Overall, this festive ale has good character and body. An ale like this is worthy of any celebration. Not too spicy, well rounded brew. Recommended.

Very malty smoky beer. Lots of figs and dates. Noticable ginger with a lot of orange peel. This is a thick beer. Hearty and very much a sipper. I couldn't go for more than one of these honestly. Unless it was significantly aged.

This will also have a bottled version.
