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

From a 33 cl bottle to a snifter.

A: pours a clear garnet/ruby color with a thick three finger beige head that lasts for quite some time before breaking down.

S: Some dark fruits, cherries, caramels and yeast.

T: fruity, raisins and figs followed by sweet malts. The yeast is there too. Alcohol is buried.

M: medium carbonation and light/thin body

O: seems to be a bit of a lightweight BSDA. Not as rich and flavorful as others and the smell and mouth feel are also less than most I have had. On the positive side, it is an easy to drink beer, the alcohol is masked well, and it looks good.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle 3 of 6 of the Belgians six pack from LCBO. Served fairly cold into an oversized wine glass.

Appearance - Dark, dark brown liquid spilled into the glass and yielded 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Garnet colored when held up to the light. Decent head retention and some spidery lacing around the glass.Beer is dark enough and opaque enough that no guess can be made at carbonation level.

Smell - Cherries, brown sugar, caramel, molasses, dark fruits namely figs. A little bit of that Belgian yeast smell too. Just the slightest shade of earthiness in the form of peat.

Taste - Slightly bitter kind of like dark bitter chocolate. Fruits are not as up front and in the spotlight on the tastebuds as they were in the nose. That peat undercurrent detected on the nose shows up a bit more here which combined with the bitterness, is reminiscent of a black licorice. Also trace coffee bean flavor.

Mouthfeel - Nice, smooth and fairly rich, ABV is imperceptible. Sharp dry finish with low to medium carbonation before that.

Overall - While complex the peat undercurrent kind of threw me off on this one and didn't enjoy as much as others in the style. Looks like I'm a sucker for sweeter Belgian Dark Ales.
