On tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY

Arrived very dark brown, with a minor mocha head, that left some strands and bits of lacing

Malty nose with a chocolate back note.

More chocolate on the palate, more dark, smooth malt notes and some smoke as it warms. I'm also getting a nice Belgian yeasty character, adding to complexity. A hint of hops in the finish of this pleasant Belgian dark creation. Nicely crafted. (423 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Trying this in a VERY dimly lit bar, so it seems pitch black...but holding a candle to it shows it a deep brown. Very short lived head, but mine shows more lace than previous reviewers.

Smell: Coffee, Cherries, a little herbal...thyme, oregano....Not so sweet or thick as to reference raisins or plums. No cloying sweetness.

Taste: Easy drinking. Taste true to the nose with coffee, sour cherry, yeast is less belgian strong than dry english. No banana, no clove, still getting some oregano...hmm. I like it very much actually, but I don't know if it matches the style entirely.

Feel: Thicker than expected mouth feel. Lingers on the tongue and leaves a dry, pleasant after taste.

Overall: Tasted this along side an Ommegang Abbey. It compares VERY favorably. Holds up longer after the pour and very pleasant to sit and enjoy w/or wo/food. Nice. Doubt I'll see this much at home, but a pleasure to taste even once. (940 characters)

A: Dark acorn brown with mahogany and dark cherry highlights. Light tan, finger and a half head. No lacing.

S: Like a very good coffeehouse. cocoa nibs, sour cherries and plum. Rather basic, but pleasing.

M: Has a fdecent sour astringency to start. Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to go down considering ABV and flavor. Kinda dry in the overall sensation.

T: Roasted cocoa, cherries. Some herbal hopping and tangy plum skin keeps any sweet caramel maltiness in check. Some sweet smokiness as well. I'd liken this to Cherry Garcia, but w/o all the added sugar, and lacking in the cream. Really just a wonderful balance, simple, but good , quality flavors. (670 characters)
