12oz bottle purchased at Plum Market in Ann Arbor, MI.
Pours a pitch black hue with one finger of tan foam and some stringy lacing on the tulip.
Smell is roasted and nutty malts, blueberry, bubblegum, vinous aromas, cardamom, clove, red plum, faint cocoa, and smoke.
Taste is roasty malt, dark pit fruit, candi sugar, vinous red wine-like tartness mid-palate, slight cocoa and smoke, nondescript spiciness precedes a vanishing aftertaste. Doesn't do much for me.
Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, full-bodied, smooth middle, spicy and prickly hop bite transitions to a bone dry, chalky finish.
Overall, it seems like the brewer has mixed a dubbel and stout to craft this quirky take on a BSDA, but the end product fails to excite me. It's really just a malty ho hum strong ale that pales in comparison to the Belgian greats. I'm glad I got to try this since it's one of the rarer offerings from Bell's; however, I won't be purchasing again.
