4/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured half of a 22oz bottle into a snifter on 04/11/11. This is from batch #2
Pours a reddish brown with a thick, creamy off-white topper. Good retention and pretty good lacing all the way down. This brew smells of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, brown sugar, sweet biscuit, spice, with some fruity esters and some faint booze. The taste follows the nose but adds some earthy notes to the mix. I find that the flavors play nicely together. Medium body and medium carbonation round out this beer. Good and tasty for sure! Unique idea (not suing) and I hope they do it again soon.
