bottle conditioned cork. i love popping the cork on these.
Apperance: Head does not last as long as id like, but it is a nice mocha color. Great foam. dark chocolate strawberry in color. like a really thick apricot.
Nose: GREAT nose. This beer has one of the best noses for a fake Belgian Ive ever had. It is easy, and goes straight up the nose. I get some carmel, peach. Some simple fruits and a nose of alge or fungus (in a good way).
Taste: At first I get fruit soaked in alcohol. The alcohol taste is very present in this brew. If you think about it too much, you can ruin the taste. there are some astringent fruits. Lime and lemon.
Notes: The alcohol is very present in this beer. It may or may not ruin the fruits and wheaty tastes, it depends on what you like.
Serving type: bottle

My dad passed away a couple of years ago. He was a very enthusiastic fellow about many things, one of which was fruitcake (yeah, I know). In the fruitcake family, at least the way he made it, was pecan whiskey cake. Even people who hate fruitcake loved his pecan whiskey cake. This beer reminds me of that cake - dark, dried fruity, accompanied by the pleasant presence of alcohol, etc.. Whenever I drink this beer, I think of my dad and his enthusiasm for making unusual desserts.

Deep brown with amber highlights and a slightly frothy ivory head.
Aroma is figgy, with notes of dates. Fairly sweet and bready, with candi sugar.
Fairly raisiny flavor, with light alcohol and a hint of burnt sugar, with a finish of menthol and light dryness. Slight sharp cherry notes are evident. Yeast character is somewhat spicy.
Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol heat.
Very raisin dominant flavor, with light sweetness and more bready notes. The finish is fairly dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Honestly, I expected more complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
