Pennsylvania

4.3/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Great looking beer, provides a terrific introduction. Very dark color, almost hazelnut dark. Classic belgian scents, yeasty a bit of candied sugar. Taste is terrific, with a pull of plums, not tart, wild but not overwhelming cherries. Very tasty. Goes down smoothly with a light to medium mouth feel. Good thing the government has not declared this one "illegal" because it would be more popular than prohibition moonshine!

4.21/5  rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Strong, full smell, like fresh coffee grains. Dark chocolate foam, not bitter, not sweet, just as it should be. Strong taste but easily drinkable in any time of year. Mild fruit aftertaste, some caramel powder in small amounts. One word, rich and extravagant, must try, and must have.

Romania

3.34/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours muddy dark brown, copper up in the light, small beige head that goes away almost on the spot, leaving bubbly "islands" and a thin lacing.
Smell is pretty weak, some dark malts, low dark fruit, really earthy.
Taste starts with toasted dark bread, grains (spicy rye?) and burnt sugar. Dark fruity esters bring some red apple acidity, some zesty citrus and dark grapes and a faint sour cherry note. Belgian yeasts show themselves, with woody nutmeg and cinnamon, some mild minty herbs (sage, coriander) and faint clove. Mild bitterness in the finish, but there's a big clunky breadiness covering it and going into the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation, has a certain crispness from start to finish that's a bit numbing, reducing the effect of the other flavours, and then it's doughy and earthy.
You can certainly get some German doppelbock notes mixed with the Belgian signature yeasts, but it feels unbalanced and somehow hides the good parts, resulting in an almost bland tasting experience.

"Expired" best before date bottle into a snifter. Gorgeous head, not too creamy but it sticks around fo a while before dissipating. The beer itself is a nice amber-hued brown, very clear. Carmel and esters on the nose, with dried fruit coming into play when it hits your palate. Clean tasting, although I wish it had a bit more body to it. Very drinkable and refreshing, with good flavour to boot!
