thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this at the dusty sheep, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is ruddy brown with moderate haze and practically no head. The smell is full of malt with slight floral accent with light yeast aroma with some spice and mild nuts with a gentle alcohol nose. The feel is great moderately light body for the strength with mild carbonation and mostly sweet body with gentle spice texture and pretty low bitterness with practically no alcohol just a skosh in the finish.

The taste is good with a very full malt presence, mild sweet nutty and toffee-like flavor with a sweet caramel syrup element with yeast adding a phenolic accent with some floral elements and dry spice near the finish with mild alcohol flavor. This is a unique beer in the belgian dark strong category, I was pleased to try it and would certainly enjoy having it again.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruit, caramel, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but quite strong in terms of how the alcohol comes across.
