look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours reddish copper with a head that leaves, like now. No bubble action at all. Smells a little hoppy, taste starts sweet, like carmel, and finishes sort of bitter fruity. Not a bad beer, but I would prefer a little more substantial action. Can't quite put a handle on it, but seems to come up a little short.

Great taste with citrus, cloves and roasted malt. Pleasant smell with fruity aroma. But leaves a little not so great aftertaste leaving one with a feeling that this is not the real thing. Still a great substitute for the real thing brewed in Belgium. Offers a great variety and contrast to other types (IPA, Stout etc. ) when having multiple drinks in a single sitting.

3.48/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter—serving as a replacement for my broken goblet.

A: A deep-reddish amber hue, close to a mahogany, but not quite. An off-white, slightly khaki colored one-finger head starts off looking nice, but eventually fades to nearly nothing. A legion of pen-dot sized bubbles remains on top with a ring of equally tiny bubbles around the edges. One or two instances of lacing left down the glass.

S: Some under-roasted malts with hints of dark fruit and some breadiness. Hints of caramel and brown sugar underneath.

T: Lots of roasted malt upfront, giving this a slightly burnt profile with some chocolate-covered raisin flavor underneath. A little bit of nuttiness and earthiness from the yeast comes through in the finish, but is short-lived due to being overtaken by those burnt characteristics.

M: Medium-bodied with a crisp carbonation. Flows smoothly across the palate, with a moderately creamy texture. Nothing to write home about, but definitely above-average drinkability.

O: Flying Fish definitely didn't make a bad brew here, but it's just slightly underwhelming. The roasted profile is a bit too pronounced, which makes for a very burnt/smoky experience. This might be good at the pub, or paired with some food, but it didn't exactly impress me as a sip-at-home brew. Worth a try; not worth a re-buy.
