Bottle from Batch #6

A: poured into a chalice to a reddish brown with a finger of dense off white head that fades to a small pool and leaves some lacing
S: smells of dark fruits, candi sugar, spicy yeast. smells phenomenal
T: taste is plums and other dark fruits, candi sugar, and some slight spice flavors, some phenols. swallow is a little alcohol, some residual sugary sweetness, and some lingering dark fruits
M: heavier side of medium on the palate with soft carbonation and a drying finish
O: RR Salvation is better on its own than combined with this but this did help to even out Avery's rendition of this beer. Overall, this is a really good Belgian Strong Dark. It's very smooth and mellow with great flavors and complexity.

Batch #7 Bottled 2-2014

Pours a deep copper with quickly dissipating head. Lightly fruity apple (acetaldehyde?), raisin, honey and floral nose. The taste follows the nose. The lightly fruity flavors are dominant but pleasant and slightly sweet. Hints of sherry, black pepper and almond/amaretto on the back end. Solvent alcohols and a slightly astringent and bitter finish. The mouthfeel is below average - thin and undercarbed. Overall, this is an interesting beer with nice belgian yeast notes. But as far as Belgian styles falling in the realm of a BSDA or dubbel, this beer is nothing special.
