Had at Novare Res on 10/29
Served in a tulip
A: This pours an opaque black, minor reddish edges when held to the light. Two fingers of thick, creamy light brown head. Head holds extremely well and leaves nice big chunks of lacing on the glass.
S: Nose is belgian yeast notes, nice roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of hop bite.
T: Taste starts with a mixture of dark fruits, raisin and dates, mingled with nice belgian spiced yeast. Middle has some nice roasty notes, that are quickly overtaked by bitter baker's chocolate, and strong coffee/espresso bite that carries through the finish.
M: Medium body, higher carbonation, slightly thinner body with a dry finish.
D: Goes down easily, nice kick, nice representation of style, a touch less carbonation would be nice, but a damn fine beer that I would easily get again.
Serving type: on-tap
