4.3/5 rDev +13.8%
Pours out to a generous beige head and brown color. Aroma is funky Belgian all the way: bubblegum, clove, sugars, aged hops, mixed fruit. Flavor is right along with the smell: fruity, estery, sort of roasty, molasses and dusty hops. Mouthfeel is sugary and medium. Overall a classic Bruin. Very satisfying.

3.64/5 rDev -3.7%
Explosively pours a clear ruddy brown with a three-inch cap of tan head that slowly lowers to between a fat film and a finger or so. Very good retention; lots of sticky lacing. (4.25)
Dark bread and coffee. Sweet and bitter, over ripe dark fruit up front with toasted nut and coffee notes. (3.75)
Sweet, clean, and nutty. Dark bread, toasted nuts, a hint of coffee and some cherry. (3.5)
Thinnish, light-medium body, lots of carbonation pretty velevety. (3.5)
Decent beer, wholly inoffensive as far as similar beers in the style go.
Pours nice and has a pretty good aroma on it. It smells nice and nutty and tastes similar. Basically, this is an okay beer all-in-all but it could be improved with a 'amping up' of everything about it.
Drinkable, good intro beer for people just getting into Belgians (less likely to scare away than some hahaha).
Would have again if it was on as good of a sale as there was today; were one to be curious about trying this beer, it would be advised to do likewise.... (3.75)

4.45/5 rDev +17.7%
Poured into a balloon glass.
A nice foamy mocha colored head patiently sits on top of a dark mahogany body. Foamy lines of lacing stick to the glass.
Aromas of chocolate, sweet fruits, figs, and malt blend well together.
The tongue is dazzled with the same notes as the aroma. Very sweet and malty up front with dashes if cherries, pears, and figs.
The beer goes down smooth and the 6.5% ABV is relatively hidden.
Overall, one of the better Belgian dark ales I've had.
