3.65/5 rDev -2.9%
On tap into a special Leute Bok orb-looking glass with wooden holder.
A-This is a pretty good-looking beer. It is dark brown, nearly black, and topped by a dense two-finger khaki head. The head has good retention and leaves some lacing behind.
S-The smell is not very strong for a BSDA. There is a bit of milk chocolate, some dark bread, and a bit of vague, hoppy bitterness.
T-The taste is slightly more impressive than the smell with a hint of dark, dried fruit and some milky chocolate. There is also a little bitterness towards the finish, but all-in-all, this brew is kind of boring.
M-The beer is light to medium weight for the style with light to moderate carbonation.
O-Once you get past the looks, which are pretty solid, there is not much happening with this "Bok." The smell and flavors are uninspiring and the feel is strangely light. On the positive side, the alcohol is well-hidden. Also, the orb-type glass and stand are kind of fun to play with.

Poured from 33 cL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a murky caramel brown with 1 inch light tan head. Good retention.
S: Sweet bready belgian yeast, caramel malt, and dark dried fruit (e.g. raisin, fig, etc.).
T: Sweet caramel malt, fresh belgian yeast, and dark dried fruit. Follows aroma, but comes across quite sweet.
M: Light body. Sweet and a bit chewy feel. Hint of peppery spice tingles the tongue.
D: Nice drinkability in a fairly straight-forward beer. Nothing special, but certainly a decent brew.

Poured from the bottle.
The beer poured out clear, dark-brown. It smells like a lot of Belgian beers, with the sweetness of the Belgian yeasts. It has a slight toastedness to it, but nothing that stands out too much. It taste similar to the smell; you get the initial taste of most Belgian-beers, but then the toastedness comes through and is very balanced and drinkable.
Would I buy it again? Possibly.
