A caramel color pour. No lacing. Thin foam that disappears.
S scent of raisins, and Belgian yeast. Has a slight acidic smell.
T sweet fruit flavor, along with Belgian yeast and finishes with a acidic burn. Slightly tart.
M easy drinking beer. Feels lighter than the ABV.
O a fun belgian style Id try again. Another good option from DFH.
Serving type: on-tap

A: somewhere between amber brown and ruby brown, nice tan two-finger head to start
S: noticed the sweet raisin aromas, maltiness
T: bright yeast flavors make the raisin notes take on a wine-like character; relatively dry tasting considering the fruitiness, which makes for a very pleasant drinking experience
M: nice and crisp, clean and light - very drinkable
O: I shouldn't be surprised by any Dogfish Head ales at this point, but I didn't expect to like this as much as I do - an extrememly enjoyable beverage with a great flavor and feel profile. though it falls into the BSDA group, it was lighter and crisper than others I've had (which I liked)

Drank on 05/02/2012
Poured from bottle to pint glass.
Appearance: A dark brown, close to maroon, body, minimal head and retention.
Smell: Sweet dark belgian smell of raisin and plum.
Taste: Very sweet but a little more alcohol in taste than others. Strong similarity in taste to a traditional belgian in regards to the raisin and plum taste. Finishes with a warm and roasty feel.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied.Little carbonation.
Drinkability: I like darker belgians, I like this, very easy and not as complex as others I have had.
