4/5 rDev +6.1%
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.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Bottled 10/18/11.
Appearance: A stout like dark blackish brown with a moderate amount of bubbles clinging to the glass. About two fingers of tan head that quickly fade into a few thin patches. Lacing is fairly light.
Smell: Some Belgian yeast and cloves with dark fruits including raisins, figs, and dark cherries. Also a big presence of dark roasted caramel malts giving a mildly sweet chocolate aroma with a hint of coffee. Smells somewhat sweet but balanced.
Taste: Dark fruit taste upfront with hints of dark cherries, plums, and raisins. Moderate amount of Belgian yeast and clove adds a bit of a funky kick. Midway comes a very noticeable presence of roasted malts with caramel, toffee, chocolate, and a light hint of coffee. Kind of tastes like a Belgian dark ale mixed with a English porter. Very tasty.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very crisp and smooth. Slightly boozy feeling but the heat is very tame.
Overall: An interesting and tasty take on a Belgian dark ale. Very well balanced.
