This is one of if not the best example of an American-made Belgian dark ale I have ever tried..
A: The name says it all. Very dark brown/black, with a tan head.
S: Malty, chocolatey, spicy, etc, etc, etc..this bouquet is amazing.
T: All of the aromas you pick up initially, certainly come to fruition when you take your first sip. Full-flavored, and nicely balanced between start and finish. Warm yet not overpowering aftertaste.
M/D: Velvet on the tongue. Full-bodied, yet easy to drink. Tiptoes the line between one-off and session beer. Surprising for such a high-alcohol beer.
This review was written based on my cask tasting, but since then I have had a regular tapping as well as many 750ml bottle pours. All were/are fantastic. One of my personal favorite beers, of which I have several now aging in my basement.
Serving type: cask
