4.03/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from growler to chalice

Aged about 6 months

A: Dark amber in color, scant evidence of carbonation as the viscous liquid leaves no lacing anywhere on the glass.

S: Nice strong bouquet. Lots of tropical and candied fruits at the front, playing off notes of holiday spice. Anise, toffee surround the bouquet. Plenty of alcohol volatiles usher the sweet scents, leading to pronounced aromas.

T: The toffee notes leap to the front, followed quickly by the various flavors of ripe fruit. Banana, apple, papaya and guava - quite pronounced. There profile has an edge of holiday spice - nutmeg, clove, cinnamon - that blend well with notes of anise and butterscotch. Hops actually play a role here, more than usual for the style, and work to dry the palate towards the end of the swallow. Ends with a short, sweet finish.

M: Rich and chewy, but not overly so given the ABV. There's enough carbonation to cut down on the sticky complexion.

A nice stab at the style, and I like the hop presence. I wouldn't call it a "hoppy beer", but given that this is Alpine it's fitting you can actually detect the hop notes. Overall, this is a tasty brew I'd look for again.

Serving type: growler

On tap at O'Brien's

A: Pours a dark brown almost cola color with a thin cream colored head. Leaves a few spots of lacing down the glass.

S: Candi sugar, Belgian yeast and some dark fruit. Alcohol is pretty evident as well.

T: Very similar to the smell. Dark fruit and Belgian yeast with some brown sugar and a hint of plum. Mouthfeel is way thinner than I expect from an 11 percenter. Definitely not a bad try.

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

A - Watered down cola color, fairly clear, nice very light brown head leaves slowly, not much cling.

S - Big Belgian yeast character, sweet and full of tropical fruit. That juicy fruit gum is there.

T - Very similar to smell. Possibly sweeter than the smell implied, but knocked pretty well with the hops.

M - Medium to heavy body, good balance, carb lower than I would have liked.

D - A very tasty brew. Nice offering from the dudes up the street.

Serving type: growler

On-tap at the Toronado. Served in a tulip.

A - Off-white foam settles to a collar, wisps, and minimal lace. Transparent ruby body.

S - It's Belgian alright - tons of anise, candi sugar, dark bread, spicy yeast, and eye-stinging alcohol.

T - Again, heavy on the anise, candi sugar, dark bread, caraway seeds, and red fruits, with a tad less alcohol than the aroma.

M - Smooth, medium-full body, chewy texture, dry finish, and surprisingly little warming considering how present the alcohol is in the taste. Moderate-to-low carbonation level.

D - This is quite boozy at this stage, but I also find Rochefort 10 pretty hot out of the gate so I imagine there is aging potential for this one. Otherwise, it's a pretty solid quad and a surprisingly good American take on the style. Still, it took a number of us to finish the tulip.
