Pour was dark chocolate with a one finger head. Great lacing on the glass that held throughout the drink.

Heavy malt smell at the front of the nose. Hints of florals and hop spice in the rear.

The drink starts with a heavy kick of malt sweet in the front. Around mid tongue there is a quick kick of hops with that standard Belgian finish.

Easy drinking beer, and incredible from a cask. I look forward to trying it on regular tap or in a bottle.

I've always thought Clipper City is a massively underrated producer of the finest quality. Shocking that I have never had this beer, of my favorite style, from them.

The appearance is a deep mahogany, mostly opaque but along the edges a little light seeps through the deep amber. An off-tan head remains, and clings just a little to the glass.

A boozy trip in the aroma, firy. Highly bready and filled with a frontal malt nose.

Woody, boozy, bready flavor. Nice balance between that and the deep malts. The belgian malts really deliver a dark fruity flavor. Plum, cherry, a little sherry flavor...nice and complex.

Full mouthfeel. Creamy and full bodied. A little hot.

A pleasing brew and really reliant on Special B malt, I would guess. That mild pungency that arises from the beligian yeast and the fruity malt really makes up for the forward booziness.

Another Heavy Seas goodie. Decent price makes this a good sipper summer session brew – but as a sipper only.

Deep mahogany brown with a semi-frothy tan head that produced nice sliding laces. Small notes of Belgium yeast and sugar cane in the aroma. But the taste is where this one shines; nice mishmash of plum and cherry, sweet and tart – maybe just a smidgen of cherry cough syrup, but not enough to be a distraction. Smooth and silky texture, I’m ready for a couple more.
