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

from notes
A - Swampy purple with light at the bottom, 2 fingers of head, half finger retention
S - Plumb and pear, light clove and spice, mild caramel
T - Big minerally note, leafiness and slightly grainy, strangely the belgian phenol flavours are outnumbered
M - creamy carbonation with a smooth feel, alcohol is well integrated here with not real bite
O - generally a pleasant enough Belgian Dark, however the label and timing left me hoping it would have more of an winter/xmas quality to it which it fails to deliver on, but still well worth a try

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a mini snifter.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing.

S- Dark fruit notes including black cherry, currant and blackberry. Faint spice.

T- Very balanced flavor of toasty malt, slightly sweet dark fruit and more mild spice. Hint of oxidation.

M- Slightly dry and a bit tangy. Medium-high carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Pretty good but not anything super special. Easy to drink for the ABV and has all the right flavors to satisfy your BSDA craving.

This is less “craft” and more upscale than the normal La Rulles. It has less chunks of raisins. It’s more filtered. The aroma is less strong. The flavor is less strong. The raisin aroma is diminished. It has a floral aroma. More alcohol. A big head becomes a thinner but not flat. Medium to high carbonation. Bitter. I prefer the normal La Rulles.

Large beige head that settles in a lumpy way. Ruby-amber color and predictably cloudy. Good ring lace.

Semi-sweet with the smell of milk chocolate and darker (deeply toasted, but not burnt) malts. Some alcohol and yeast in the background.

A dark malt start with a rich toasty flavor. The swallow has a mild bitterness with a berry-like touch. Thin bodied which is enhanced by the notable alcohol presence. Low carbonation.

Pours into a chalice a deep burgundy brwon with a sticky tannish colored head head atop,a great pour.Aromas of spent grain and yeasty spice with a light alcohol note.Flavors are yeaty up front with some cork-like notes,some phenol spice comes into play thru to the finish.Not bad and not overly heavy,the yeast plays a big role here.

Deep mahogany bodied ale with a big frothing tan khaki head forming thick rising above the rim of the glass. Aroma has tart fruit with big funky yeast notes, hints of citrus and Christmas spices. Santa is on the label looking pretty deviant without a beard, maybe it's one of the brewers at La Rulles. A deep fruit note pretty non descriptive flavor, big malts, mild spicy yeast notes leaves a dry semi sweet finish. Dark leather notes, medicinal cherry, earthy sprigs from pine trees or oak birch accents, what a beer. The type of Belgian ale only a mother could love big overpowering and a bit of a bully this has no finesse compared to some of my favorite ales out there. Overall I'm waiting to try something excellent in comparison, to this dumbed down and non accentuated notes that I've come to know and adore.
