Served on-tap at Monk's Kettle in SF in a La Chouffe glass.

A: Pours a very dark murky brown with a thin head.

S: Dark caramel malt with a touch of dark fruits.

T: Starts out with dark fruits in the form of figs, raisins and prunes. It's an intriguing mix of sweet and sour. The caramel malt is also on play as are some floral hops in the finish.

M: Medium bodied, light carbonation.

D: A good dark belgian, maybe not as complex as some of the better ones, but still worth trying.

A: dark brown color with a thick two fingers head, that even reducing, lasts until the end of the glass.

S: Sweet malt and fruits with light notes of spices.

T: Sweet malt, sugar, fruits and spices hides the 8% alcohol, making it taste excellent.

M: Despite a round and sweet taste the aftertaste is bittersweet and not long lasting, making you want more.

D: excellent and very drinkable, good both with red meat or just by itself
