look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Dark auburn color as it pours. Nice dark color in the glass, but very minimal head after the pour

Smell - Lots of caramel and malts here

Taste - Roasty sweet and caramelized malts

Mouthfeel - leaves with a nice bitter finish

Overall - Fun boozy beer that is hides the alcohol content well

Bought a 750-mL bottle at the brewer back in June. Poured into a oversized tulip glass for review. Pours a dark opaque brown with amber edges. Great lacing on the glass with fluffy head. Smells like burnt raisins with molasses, brown sugar and carmelly taffy. Tastes chewy with similar tastes as aroma. Feels medium to full. Overall, okay one-off. Like the idea of a Tripel/Dubbel hybrid, but I feel this one can't really find it's identity. Seems more like a dubbel to me. Even with that, still a decent beer. Not sure it's worth $10 a bottle, but still def worth trying.

Bottle shared by Jeff. Thanks man.

The beer is dark chestnut brown with a thick, beige head. Ample lacing coats the glass. The aroma offers a prominent dose of banana, followed by Belgian yeast, malt, brown bread. Too much banana character in the flavor. A bit sharp and unbalanced. Not on par with the authentic Belgian dark beers I have grown to love.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a murky brown color with some light hints of red within. Upon pouring there is a tan colored head of about one finger height. The head is composed of lots of fizzy bubbles fading fast to leave some light streaking lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heavy of darker fruits with plum, cherry and raisin. Along with the fruit there is a rather strong roasted malt aroma as well as sweeter smells of toffee and candied sugar. Rounding out the smell is an aroma of yeast bringing with it some notes of coriander and clove spice as well as some banana.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet and roasted malt flavor upfront. The sweet is heavier of a caramel and toffee flavor at the start, but transitions to being more dominated by some darker and lighter fruits more toward the middle and the end of the taste. Along with the fruits coming into the tongue, so too does some spice flavors of clove and coriander with just a hint of yeast. A chocolate flavor develops more at the end of the tongue and is joined by some warming boozy alcohol tastes to end up leaving a sweet and darker malt flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is average to slightly high. The combination is very nice for the darker and warming flavors of the brew all while complimenting well the fruitiness of the beer.

Overall- Very dubbel like in nature but with a bit more potency and some notes of a triple mixed within. A rather enjoyable brew for sure.
