On-tap at the Costa Mesa location, on to the beer:

Dots of lace sprinkle around the glass of this amber brown colored beer. The aroma has a Belgian flare to it, spicy and succulent. More specifically, the aromas of clove and cake batter, yum! It doesn't let me down with its flavor either, and manages to add a little more complexity. Spicy clove is first recognized. Notes of banana, fennel, and unsweetened cocoa up the stakes, as well as the taste. Flavor-wise, it reminds me of a fresh Leffe Brune. Adding to the flare is its medium body with gently placed carbonation bubbles. For a brewery which has been known for lighter sessionable offerings, Fullsuit is a great changeup.

Served it from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours to a dark brown with an off white foam head. Carries a pleasant nutty nose that invites you to savor this beer. Malts, coffee, nuts and a tangy feel of spices make up the profile of this beer. Mildly bitter yet refreshing especially when eating spicy food. Overall a surprisingly great beer.

On Tap

Carlsbad, CA

Brown body with a thin light khaki colored head that leaves small spots and thin lines of lacing down the glass.

There isn't a lot to this aroma: there's perhaps a touch of Belgian yeast tang and a touch of caramel, but I'm really not finding much. To it's credit, there's nothing unwelcome here, just nothing at all very good.

The flavor is a combination of brown bread, Cheerios, and a very mild Belgian yeast tang, but again, there's not a lot of flavor.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

This is not a very good beer. There's nothing at all here that's particularly off-putting, there just simply isn't a lot of anything here. I won't order this again.

A - Medium brown body with a nice sticky lacing left as the head fades slowly.

S - The aroma of sweet Belgian malt is all that comes out.

T - The flavors of sweet Belgian malts and a slight roastiness make for a very enjoyable brew. This is a good tasting beer.

M - Coarse on the tip of my tongue but smooth in the back as it goes down. Nothing exceptional either way in this category.

~ This is a tasty and sessionable beer... even at an ABV of 6.3%. This beer is worth your time. If you have the opportunity, be sure to sample this fine brew.
