Kentucky

3.6/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an opaque copper brown with a solid one finger beige head that dissipates quickly, leaving significant lacing.

Dates, figs, raisins, and plums lead the aroma, with brown sugar and caramel malt supporting belgian yeast esters.

Decidedly sweet caramel malt, pretty cloying, forms the backbone, with a slightly tart apple finish providing stark contrast. Unusual for a belgian beer. The belgian yeast esters pale in comparison. Requisite dark fruit flavors follow the aroma profile.

Body is fairly heavy, with minimal carbonation and a significant alcohol warmth.

Overall, an interesting departure from the standard belgian strong. The tart character is unexpected, but breaks up the sweet malt dominance.

Serving type: on-tap

3.56/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Had a 6 oz taster at Dandelion market in Charlotte, an under-rated place not even listed yet on Beer Advocate...

Slightly cloudy, and probably more of an orange than a golden color. it was lighter than I expected, being called a Belgian Dark. nose was pleasant, with typical yeast notes. Good flavor, not overpowering, picking up some yeasty and citrus, very pleasant drinking overall.

Serving type: on-tap
