I picked this up while on vacation in Florida. This was a pretty good pick for a vacation, but not so much for a warm evening.

I poured this into an approximation of a pint glass (really a water glass). This was a very dark black.

I smell caramel, tobacco, and a slight bit of coffee.

The tasted was a little blunted. I got more out of the smell than the tasted. The flavor was like hitting a wall.

The body was very thick as it should be.

Pretty good, but I recommend the Expedition over this.

Pours up dark but still nice and thin. Head subsides fairly quickly. Looks like black water in the glass. Nice spicy taste with adequate carbonation. This beer could use a little something zingy or zesty to accompany all of the flavor. Good brew, Bell's!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip; bottled 10/18/11. Deep black body with about a one-finger tan head. The head dissipates quickly and leave a little bit of lacing.

Dark malt is the primary aroma, but also some sweet, dark fruit. The Belgian yeast seems to be yielding notes more along the lines of a hefeweizen like banana, but the yeast notes are definitely present.

The flavor has a quick bitter, roasted malt bite, follow by the sweeter, ester-like tastes from the yeast. The dark fruit flavors are along the plum and raisin variety.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel with a slight notice of the alcohol. Different than others I've had. I like it.

A: Poured into a tulip glass. Very dark black with a thick tan colored head.

S: Roasted malts with a definite belgian yeast aroma in the background. Smells very sweet and roasted, almost smoked.

T: The roasted aroma continues in the flavor, but there is a sweetness there that evens it out. A little bit more fruity and a little more depth in the flavor. A bit of spice and prunes in there also. Finishes sweet and roasted....almost burnt, which is very unique.

M: Heavier body and a little syrupy with good carbonation to lighten the beer up a bit. Sweet on the tongue.

O: Not like anything I've had before. More roasted than most stouts or even some smoked beers. The sweetness and the esters and spice from the belgian yeast give it some nice flavor. You have to slowly acclimate yourself to this beer. It's almost like stepping into a cold pool. At first it's very overwhelming, but then you get used to it and the flavors in the beer really come through.
