750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. The brew appears dark brown in color with cola clarity around edges. A tan cap fades leaving spotty lace on the glass.

The aroma includes notes of cocoa and fruit. Some mildly vinous aspects with vanilla and caramel from the barrel aging as it breathes.

The taste has some vinous to raisony/plum notes before chocolate and more raisin. A little yeasty with caramel and oak/vanilla from the barrel creates a smoothness and suggestion of sweetness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Interesting with some good character but nothing id get exited about drinking again.

Poured from a 1PT 9.4 oz bottle into a stemmed glass showed a very beautiful dark reddish brown brew with a creamy tan head about 2" high, nice lacing hangs on as you enjoy this beer. The aroma is that of a Dark Strong Belgian Ale..a nice series of spicy notes hit the nose along with a alcohol up front cover...picked up a slight hint of chocolate and some oak from the barrels. The taste was straight Belgian Strong Ale with some nice spice, dark fruits and maybe a bitter coffee near the end. Mouthfeel is medium and right on spot, the flavors hang around on the tongue and gives a great aftertaste of spicy dark ale. Aside from being labeled A DARK BELGIAN STYLE STOUT it's listed on BA as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale...which is exactly what it tastes like, at 9% ABV it comes in where it should. This is a well made brew with a good solid flavor and would be great to share or use for a special occasion....as I did..good job and I enjoyed it.
