(review from notes; tried on 02/05/11)

pours a dark brown shade with a healthy finger-plus beige head; decent retention and lacing.

nose offers roasted malt, a touch of chocolate, dark fruits, spices, and yeast. maybe a hint of hoppiness in the background. flavor mostly follows the nose. you have your traditional elements of a BSDA along with some more subdued stout characteristics. complex, balanced, and enjoyable, though doesn't move the earth.

medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. whereas they nailed it with local 1 in my opinion, here BB pulls off a "mere" solid brew. that said, it's definitely worth a try.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a long lasting off-white head and a lot of lacing. Yeasty aroma follows by chocolate, dark fruit and hints of hops. Body is full and smooth. Chocolate, dark fruit spices, Belgium yeast, brown sugar, earthy hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and very spicy. Complex, delicious brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark red/plum color with a gorgeous foamy tan head that persisted throughout.

Smell: Honey, kiwi, melons, figs, Belgian candi sugar, yeast.

Taste: Fruitiness takes on a more mature character - prunes and tart apples. Bready malts complement the dark fruit/molasses combination and give it some nice depth. Noticeable alcohol warmth combined with a surprising carbonic bite on the tongue make this one a sipper, but a pleasant one.
