3.58/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance/ Very dark, almost black. A full 2 fingers of rich, brown foam that left a nice sticky lacing.
Smell/ A nice malt aroma with a toasty coffee and chocolate highlights in the background.
Taste/ The thing that I tasted most was a strong coffee flavor followed by a malty chocolate flavor. A slight hop presence was in the background.
Mouth Feel/ This was a very smooth beer wit a nice little hop bite right at the end.
Over All/ I really liked this beer. I think it was pretty well in line with the style. It is not the best winter style beer I have had but I went back and some more when I finished my first six pack. I would drink this again at any time.

Enjoying in the cold
Pours dark, slightly amber in color with a tan head. The smell is nutty and of red wine, and it tastes of fruit, spice, and licorice, but more so of malt (roasted). Carbonation is mild to moderate with and the overall feel is light. Complex flavors yet very drinkable

Poured into a 12 oz. tulip at Croft's Tavern, Spring City, PA
A- Slight deep brown body with red hues coming out. Tan head retains decently. A little lacing sticks to the glass as well.
S- Caramel, and a dark red wine flavor ( a little port like). Raisin and a small amount of alcohol in the nose as well.
T- Sweet roasted malts, dark fruit, and a little spice. Fresh yeasty Belgian spice. Very nice.
M- Tingle of carbonation, medium body, with a bit of creaminess. Sweet boozy finish.
O- This is more of a spicier version of a Dubbel, but very very tasty. Spices used sparingly, if at all, which make this a fine winter warmer in my book.
Serving type: on-tap
