Draft @ City Beer Store on 1/19/15. Pours a dark brown/burgundy with minimal tan head. Aroma of malty, raisin sweetness with some banana, cola nut and spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy. Palate of dark fruit, malty sweet, cola and spice. Well balanced dark belgian with great aroma and flavor.

I was surprised how dark this poured a nice dark brown. The flavor was really nice the hops and malts were perfect together. I'm glad i have another one of these to enjoy.

On tap at Russian River

A: Pours dark brown with a light tan head that settles and laces very well.

S: Very slight tartness, dark fruit, some spice, and dark sugar sweetness.

T: Roasted malt, a touch of light coffee, dark fruit, plumb and cherry, nice spice, and toffee sweetness. Hides it's % very well.

M: Towards the heavier end of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Batch 6 bottled January 2008 and consumed a few days short of seven years later. This one is aging wonderfully. Dark fruits, brown sugar, yeast. Solid brew.
