Pours a deep brown and maintains a decent head. Even as i let it sit for a few minutes the head refused to dissapear comlete. No lacing at all..
Aroma is of strong molasses and hidden muted citrus. Even a strong whiff of this isn't overpowering considering it's brewing style.
Initial taste that hits the tastebuds brings back memories of a mild barleywine, but then the flavor gives way to bright fruits. Sour plums and tangy citrus notes poke through the caramel front end of this amazing brew. I was expecting a heavier feel considering it's style, but it's quite light and drinkable. Finishes with malt overtones that eventually leaves very little aftertaste.
Overall a great bear from a brewery that never ceases to surprise.

4.4/5 rDev +8.1%

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
