Poured from a standard pressure-cap 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live in high elevation Kalispell, Mont.

A- Two-finger mocha head atop a mahogany body. Moderately active carbonation with nice fluffy lacing and floating head. Looks pretty good.

S- Caramel malts, slight alcoholic and dark fruit notes. More Belgian than I was expecting.

T- Dark malt, caramel, licorice, dark fruits. Not rich, but tastes good.

M- Light bodied, nice feel.

O- Hey, a good beer. Can't complain about that.

From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. The stamp looks a bit like: 022538DHB. Sampled on July 22, 2013.

Here's one that I see everywhere but did not realize I had not rated it yet. The pour is brown to deep amber with a beige head that eventually settles down.

The aroma has a solid barley malt forward nose and a kind of burnt sweetness to it. It smells like a full beer.

The body is medium with a bit of astringency.

The taste is also sweet and malt forward with a low alcohol burn and quick lingering bite at the end. In some respects it reminded me of a well-aged, mellow barleywine.
