Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a deep amber colour. Not much to smell as far as the nose of this beer goes. A little bit of dark malt aromas. There's a little more on the palate, though nothing too complex. It's nutty, sweet and a lot like a Scotch ale, heavy on the malt, without much hops. Almost maple syrup like. You could reduce this down and pour it over pancakes. It's a good hearty, vaguely Belgian/vaguely Scotch dark ale.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a chalice, the beer is a hazy, opaque, dark caramel-amber coloring with a filmy, sparse, light, off-white surface coating of head. Aromas of rich, sweet toffee, tangy caramel, vanilla highlights, date, fig, woody notes, and some earthy notes. Very rich and sweet nose. Flavors are very tangy sweet forward, almost sugary, with hints of booze throughout. Caramel, date, fig, nut, and hints of chocolate blast the forward tongue, but the tangy sweetness blows everything else away. You do start to get some woody and earthy notes underlying the sweetness, and a little bit of building warmth from the slightly elevated ABV. Mid-bodied, but almost too light for the flavor profiles. The aftertaste is so cloyingly sweet, with the tangy caramel continuing it's reign of dominance over your taste buds. Slick, slightly oily finish, with a lingering cloying feel. This seems a bit out of balance, for me, for the style. Tasty, but could use some tweaking.

Bottled: unk

Pours a rye bread brown with a etched surface of toasted cream foam. Smells of wood, hazelnuts, some grain, some flour, a bit of prune. Bitter, with some toasted grains, some dry charred character, a little bit of clove and alcohol. Medium on thin with moderate carb and a wet finish. Not very good.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a fine half finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of caramel malt, dark stone fruit, slight alcohol. Flavor is a subdued sweet caramel malt, dark dried fruit, nuts, Belgian spicing, slightly earthy. Finish is a bit bland, but malty. Nice medium body with some creaminess. The sweetness and flavor components make this lean more towards a Scotch ale than a Belgian, although there are some Belgian yeast and spicing elements here. Interesting, but not noteworthy.

22oz bottle, split, hill farmstead stemware

Muddy garnet - light tan lace, no retention. A "petite quad" - earthy, but sweet, light alcohol warming, brown sugar, tobacco, leather. A decent beer - no real wow factor, kind of reminiscent of a nice scotch ale.
