Color - dark walnut. Medium head.

Aroma- esters apparent and hints of pear and raisin.

Taste- A syrupy and hot interpretation of a Belgian brew. A complete miss and not measurable to any Belgian I've tried.

I have nothing against Real Ale (I've been to Blanco many times). This brew just doesn't measure up to its label.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass), Tasted December 2012.

12 oz. bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise goblet. Edition #002, best consumed by 10.08.13

Big thanks to cfh64 (Brad) for the extra.

A: Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring.

S: There's a ton going on. Fruity yeast, dark fruit, caramelized sugar, and some slight coffee bean.

T: Dark fruits, dark malts, some slight bitterness with a touch of paper. Sweet malts and light caramel.

M: Medium to thin bodied. Was expecting a little more body to this beer. Full flavor, but some prickly carbonation whisks it away pretty quickly.

O: I enjoyed the nose on this immensely, but the mouth feel was lacking. A little too thin and the carb was a little high. Overall it was nicely done though.

Thanks to lnashsig for this one.

App- This poured out a deep brown color. Maybe tended a little in the center to look a little black. A good density and then trailed off at the edges. The head was a small 1/2" with a slow receding look but didnt leave lace or cling.

Smell- Well I am really not sure how to disect all this. The base quad is there. Some deep dark fruits and a little bit of sweetness. Then a bit of the malts come in and add like a small anise. A little bit of a mish mash but still nice.

Taste- Its tasty but just slightly above average for me. This was a good bit of sweetness and then quad came in. Dark fruits a little bit of sugar and then parlayed over into a malty bite with a bit of a Wookey Jack flavor.

Mouth- A bit on the thin side and then with a medium carbonation. The residual flavors are that of dark fruits and a bit of sweetness.

Drink- Just okay. Was hoping for a bit more out of this one.
