Pours a hazy dark brown. The 1/2 inch khaki head fades to a thin ring on top and leaves spots of lace.

The smell is of raisins, plums, dark grain and vague spices.

The taste is a raisins and an unspecified spice presence.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Definitely influenced by Belgian dark ales, this is a solid offering that features a strong dark fruit flavor profile.

Had this at Sally's in San Diego. Walnut color with a thin tan head that lasted a good 60 seconds. Was served way too cold, so there wasn't much aroma. In fact, there wasn't much aroma after it warmed up, either, although I managed to detect some caramel and apricots at some point. Mild carbonation was nice, and provided a prickly base for the dried fruit and light hops in the taste, but over all this was a rather blah beeah. I don't see much relation between this beer and any other Belgian dark I've had. I like the name, but I'd avoid another glass of this.
