11.2 oz brown bottle - brewed 1/2013 noted on the label

Stift Engelszell Gregorius poured a very dark brown almost black hue that featured a nice 2-finger tan and bubbly head. The nose smells a dark caramel malt and dark fruit. The flavor is also dominated by sweet dark malts, dark bread with a little chocolate noted. There is a pleasant alcohol warming at the finish. The mouth feel is creamy with a bubbly carbonation and has a high-medium body.

Overall, this is a flavorful and enjoyable Belgian Strong Dark Ale.

Date: 11/3/14
Location: DeCicco's Harrison
Draught/Bottle: Brown Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Dark brown to ruby copper in color. Pours with a one inch off what head that looks rather fluffy for a strong ale. The alcohol clearly beats the carbonation back down again. Flecks of yeast can be observed near the bottom of the glass
Aroma: Starts with a candied sweetness melding with honey. Dark malts follow providing a more mellow earthy malts and some own malt sweetness of their own.
Taste: So many flavors but again starting with a slight variant on the sweetness as the sugar moves closer to brown sugar flavored. Followed by intense dark fruits ranging from grapes to plums. The alcohol really pushes away the malt flavors and dominate the flavors.
Mouthfeel: Medium body but different layers present themselves making the beer feel heavier. High carbonation reminds you that this bottle conditioning has been going on and that this beer is very much alive. The beer provides a good deal of alcohol warmth.

Notes: My first non Belgian Trappist ale this is a fantastic addition to the class. The next I'd like to enjoy is from Spencer.

Gregorius has a vaport train out the bottle neck, a thin, cream-colored head, a dark brown appearance, minimal lacing, and an incredible amount of pretty large tan chunks which settle at the bottom, making this beer almost a semi-solid beverage. The aroma is intense, and the drinker will pick up a multiplicity of smells, including grape skin, wine, vinegar, Maraschino cherries, acid, duck sauce, yeast, brown bread, bread crust, honey, lo mien noodles, and spice. Taste is likewise complex, with flavors including all of the above, plus smoked pork, Warheads sweet & sour candies, pine oil, licorice, prunes, butter, and assorted spices. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, and Gregorius finishes wet and cloying and munch-able. Overall, this is an outstanding beer, at a minimum, and I recommend it, in the strongest possible terms.
