I picked this up on a nice fall day, out grabbing some fine cheese and while I don't regularly go for Brooklyn (not because of antipathy or any ill-will), I was glad that I picked this one up. A Belgian dark ale sounded perfect & while it lacked some Belgian qualities, I still think it's a fine dark ale, robust & tasty. The pour is a dark ruby-red to dark brown with a nice sticky, dense tan head about 1 finger. The aroma is a fruity flower with cinnamon which led me to expect a sweeter & tacky dessert beer. While the flavor is somewhat sweet, it is not too sticky and rather drinkable with nice tart grape, clove & of course rich chocolate qualities. Overall, and more pleasantly, drier than expected, I'd definitely go for another on a nice cool fall night.
