Appearance- Blackish brew, slightly watery. Tan head.

Smell- Prunes, dates, molasses, licorice, booze.

Taste- Dark malts, spice, brown sugar, finishes slightly dry.

Mouthfeel- Smooth yet well carbonated. Creamy for a Belgian strong dark ale.

Overall- Has a aftertaste that reminds me of Guinness (not good... slightly metallic and nasty chocolate malts that have no business being in this kind of beer, also a hint of something gross).

Really disappointing. I was expecting a top notch Belgian strong dark and instead was treated to something barely mediocre. Trois Pistoles is much cheaper and trumps this beer HANDS DOWN 10/10 times.

A - Murky brown amber color. Will pour a massive head if you're not careful. Great lacing.

S- Grape, yeast, malt (like the powder), funk, and some bready notes. I keep thinking I smell raw honey. Changes pretty steadily as it warms.

T- Grape and what tastes like earthy hops up front. Notes of chocolate, toast, raisin, alcohol, pepper, and light orange comes next. Slightly bitter, bready finish. Each sip is a little different. Profile loses sweetness and becomes more bitter as it warms. Honey-like flavors come out as it warms as well. No one flavor dominates another.

M- Medium thick body with light, prickly carbonation. Not overly drying.

O- I really enjoyed this beer. I've found this style to be really hit or miss for me, and this one definitely hit. I'm walking away with the impression that someone put a lot of thought and work into the crafting this beer. Wonderful balance between a multitude of flavors. Cheers to the brewer.
