Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention and no lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with some caramelized malt notes and loads of residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by dark fruit with some plums notes with light unrefined caramelized malt with load of residual sugar. Body is not as full as I would have expected with medium-to-low carbonation and some warming alcohol noticeable. Too unbalanced for my taste with too much residuals sugars and almost no attenuation.

Another rare beer from Flying Dog!!

Pours out a deep, hazy brown with a lot of ruby red highlights and a khaki head.

The aroma has a lot of raspberry/ cherry with some figs, raisins and plums along with toffee, caramel some molasses and a hint of white pepper.

The taste has a lot of tart cherry and raspberry notes up front followed by dark fruits like figs, plums and raisins that flows into some very sweet caramel and toffee notes. There is some white pepper spice and a bit of bready malt too.

The body is full and the mouthfeel is rich and creamy. The ABV is decently hidden with only a bit of warming as it goes down.

This is a nice American attempt at a Belgian Dark Ale, but it doesn't quite live up to the traditional style. Nice red and dark fruit notes, but the Belgian yeast is missing. Very nice beer and definitely worth trying.

On tap at The Salted Pig in Riverside, CA.

Pours a murky reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, brown sugar, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is an alcohol kick on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

S: Fruity esters, rich figs, brown sugar, dates, raisin bread, slight phenolics

L: Brown, slightly opaque, carbonated light tan head that dissipates to a bubbly surface.

T: Fruity, dark fruit malt with slight bready sweetness. Earthy, slightly herbal medium bitterness with some deep alcohol warmth. Finishes fairly dry with some slight residual dark fruit.

M: Medium bodied, medium high carbonation, alcohol warming.

Not impressed, very boozy and not very complex. Too bad, i love Ralph Steadman.
