look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a bottle into a Bruery Tulip.

Quite dark. Nice tan head that builds fast then fades fast. Lots of lacing.

I smell sweet grass, sweet grains and alcohol.

This one has a lot of character. It is spicy, malty, perfectly hopped, mildly bitter, subtly sweet and pleasantly boozy. There is a perfect balance between bitter and sweet and spice and malt.

Quite dry and perfectly carbonated. There is a slight peppery aftertaste but that quickly dissipates and leaves the palate clean.

Belgian strong ales are not my favorite style. But this beer knocked my socks off. Easily one of the best beers that I have had in 2013.

Serving type: bottle

On tap at Local Habit in San Diego. Totally black in the tulip. Modest head with tangy carbonation. Huge flavor of licorice from the first sip. Dark roasted malt, burnt sugar, and a sweet craziness. Expansive candy taste along with the charred barley. Sweet but shading off into that Belgian yeasty dry tang.

The licorice keeps coming up in the aroma. This is a more convincing Belgian beer than most. It even has those peculiar off flavors that make you wonder what is going on, and provide more complexity. Interesting brew on the dark side, darker than anything I've had in the Strong Dark Ale style.

Serving type: on-tap
