This brew is the culmination of all things great in beer!

A - Pours dark crystal with a volcanic head - looks like it should be sitting in a museum display case

S - Raisins, chocolate, port, perfecly balanced sweet and sour notes that are so well blended yet independantly defined

T - All components of this beer are orchestrated so well together that it creates a taste that never leaves your tongue - never

M - Awesome carbonation with a little warmth from the alcohol

D - Keep em coming!

In my opinion this is what every beer should be. Simple yet complex, highly drinkable, and oh so satisfying! There is not much better out there.

A very drinkable belgian dubble, Smells like chocolate covered cherries. Has a dark brownish red color with a thick tan head. Taste is very strong of chocolate covered cherries. This beer is oh so smooth and thick. This beer is undeniably drinkable. 1 could pick up a bottle and drink it all evening while enjoying sitting in front of the fire or watching something on AMC or TCM

Again terrible review, port flavors, very grapy, a bunch of raisin, and a complexity that is unmatched, beautiful and amazingly delicious, next time I have something good to smoke this may be on the top of my list. Can't wait to make some money, this will be the first expensive 4-pack I'll go after, can not say enough. Best tasting brown ale that I have had to date.

For some reason this one always seems to hit the spot for me. I love how all the ingredients mix so well to create this fabulous belgian beer. Quite sweet with various malts. Lots of plums, raisins and other fruit in it. Tarty apples are apparent. A slight alcohol comes in the middle providing me with a comfortable warming sensation. The Belgian yeast is noticeable throughout and really makes for an interesting, if not great, mouthfeel. This is my comfort beer.
