look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Smell: bananas, dark fruits, and sweet maltiness

Taste: bitter dry hops with sweet dark fruits, bitters, oak, mild banana notes, with subtle milk chocolate, and brown sugar

Unfortunately, I didn't pair this with anything this time but would imagine it tasting pretty good with honey baked ham. Sorry I can't help out this time around

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear dark orange-red with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, dark fruits, and a distinct cherry aroma. Taste is much the same with earthy and honey flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice fruity aromas and flavors.

330ml Bottle. La Chouffe Tulip glass. Enjoyed on feb´13. Very dark amber in color, deep ruby to the light. Beige crown & copious lacing rings. Aroma profile shows Belgian yeast, candies, caramel & toasted malts, hints of alcohol & molasses, figs & spices, herbal notes – anise & cumin-, earthy hues & hay. Toasted malts with herbal notes at first sip. Medium to full body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Bitterness in the middle lightened by plum & sweet coffee hues. Gentle astringency. Dry bitter finish & slightly heat on the aftertaste. Worth to try!!
