I'm not sure if this is a new brewery. It seemed to have popped up out of nowhere. I saw the beer on tap at my local and now it's available in numerous varieties at numerous beer stores.

Strong Dark is not my favorite Belgian style but this is pretty good considering. Very strong in flavor, a little lighter than expected in color, more coffee than chocolate, great carbonation, decent aroma. I'm looking forward to trying some of their other varieties.
