Pours dark ruby with a tan single finger head, pretty clear. Smell is full of sweet dark fruit, plums, black cherry, subtle cinnamon. Taste is sweet, clean malts, black cherry, other dark fruit, belgian yeast, caramel, cinnamon, slight hops presence. Overall this is a really great beer, great sweetness, very drinkable. Not my favorite style but this is a great take on a belgian dark but it's not as dark as I expected, overall another great one from the boys from the Queen City.

On tap at jungle jims. $3 pints any day all day simply can't be beat.

Pours a dark ruby hue with a thin light tan head. Lots of dark fruits in the aroma. Raisin, black cherry, and hints of roasted chocolate malts. The taste is outstanding, it's has lots of dark fruits, chocolate, slight bitterness and a very sweet finish. I'm very impressed after having this for the first time. I will seek it out in the future for sure. Great stuff.

Great ruby color; light lacing around edge. Beautiful brew to behold. Rich sweet nose with perfume like character with warmth. Taste of dark fruits, plum, raisin, and dates. Light spice reminiscent of some winter warmers, cinnamon, white pepper, and light bittering hops. Light caramel and chocolate malts lend well to the yeast without being overly heavy. Alcohol warming on the front and back of the taste. Excellent beer from a company I was at one time just amused with, but now with their foray into broader styles I am becoming a devoted follower, especially after having Ink Imperial Stout . Cheers.

Had on tap at Country Fresh Farm Market in Anderson.
