Pours a very clouded brown. Thick head with thick lacing. Definitely bringing the Belgian here. Robust and earthy tones with a mild sweetness. The only detractor is a kind of tangy aged orange peel that is too prevalent for my tastes. Overall though, it’s nice. Definitely a winter ale. Would go very well with food.

T- the taste is similar to the aroma with rich caramel, winter spice and some nice esters

M- smooth and full on the palate.

O- not too big but delicious

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - Pours a medium colored brown similar to caramel with some slight cloudiness, short duration of head with disproportionation in the bubbles. The foam of the head dissipates quickly. Light lacing. - 3.75

Smell - Strong malt scent. Coriander and cardamon come through strong at the end of the nose. Toffee and caramel come through strong on the nose as well. - 4.50

Taste - Malt forward, very strong first attack that rides the malt into spices and tastes of coriander and other spices. Caramel notes come through on the palate but the finish is slightly bitter either due to alcohol content or toasting of spices. Long and lasting finish. - 4.75

Mouth Feel - Coats the palate evenly with with crisp small bubbles that piece through the creamy mouthfeel. Excellent - 5.00

Overal - 4.75

Bottled 8/30/13.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, toffee, caramel, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, banana, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell but the spices come through a bit more clearly in the flavor.

Pours bronze with a huge white head.
Smell is fantastic, as is the taste.
Smooth, dark fruits, Belgian yeast, the 10 % abv is almost totally hidden but can feel the warmth as you go. Very easy to drink, hard to sip because it draws you back for more.
Very good, tasty brew. Will definitely buy a lot more of this

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy brownish orange amber with a massive three finger light tan head that slowly dissipates leaving massive sheets of lacing. Seasonal aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet bready malt and lots of spicing, primarily cinnamon and cardamom, some dark dried fruit. Flavor is rich dark fruit, orange, faint citrus, sweet bready malt, Belgian yeast, cardamom and clove, hints of alcohol. Medium bodied, slightly syrupy. A nice spiced Belgian strong dark ale, leaning towards the sweet end; the dense mixed fruit and spicing are quite appropriate for the Winter season, reminiscent of a mulled wine. Alcohol is barely noticeable, so covered well for this 10% ale.
