Opaque dark brown with violet hues. Healthy head that dissipates. Smell is milder than the taste, but plenty of Belgian Strong Dark characteristics-malty, spicy, dark fruit flavors, slight caramel presence. Alcohol is there but not as strong as expected. Good.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly hazy honey hue with a thick two finger head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of nice sweeter dates and molasses. There is an almost vinegar bbq sauce aroma. Light Belgian esters.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of sweeter dates and Belgian esters. There is more of that weird bbq sauce flavour too. Alcohol is hidden nicely.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, alcohol is very heavy handed here.

O - Overall this was a very underwhelming beer. Not sure what went wrong here but it's awful.

Split with rudzud
Pours a giant foamy bubbly 2+ finger head that fades at a med pace, nice retention, decent lacing, dark slight hazy mahogany dark brown color

Nose sweet brown malts, brown sugar, dark fruits with fig date like, candi sugar, molasses brown sugar, bbq sauce molasses vinegar thing too though

Taste is like an old bad barleywine, big sweet candy malt, Belgian brown malts, molasses brown sugar, candi sugar, etc, big alcohol heat and tingle, hot booze, perfumey alcohol and fruity esters, fig date molasses candy, dark fruits etc, little malt vinegar molasses as well more BBQ sauce, finishes super hot alcohol, sticky sweet candied dark fruits and molasses

Mouth is fuller bod sticky sweet candy, syrupy messy and super alcohol burn

Overall just sad

Bottle: Poured a murky brown color ale with a brown color foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt, residual sugar notes with some light dry fruits notes. Taste is also a mix of caramelized malt, some residual candi sugar notes with some bready notes and light dry raisins notes. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. Enjoyable but further attenuation would have provided more enjoyment.

Rich. Right away. Sweet. Mostly malt. Not much for spiciness for yeast qualities in the aroma.
Mostly clear and a nice reddish color. Tan head. Fizzy sounding.
Complex. Normal mix of malt and yeast character for style with plenty of drying on the finish. Pick up some of the date, but it blends pretty well. Good and solid version.
Thanks John.

Served in a flute from the bottle (dated 12/12/16).

Appearance: Cloudy brown color with light sediments to the body. Orange tinted white head rising half a finger's length off the body.

Smell: Banana and fruit.

Taste: Complex sweet banana and tarty. You feel yeast with hard hit of cinnamon. Raisins and touch sour but just a touch.

Mouth: Tasty finish with medium carbonation. Sticky brew, yeast finish at the end which lingers for a while.

Overall: Good brew and wish I bought more. Honor and pleasure with this little monster. Bruery should bring this back, always in a glass...Salud!

Tap @ Brewdog, Bristol - Pours cloudy amber with a medium tanned foamy head which quickly dissipates. Aroma - Sweet notes, dark stoned fruits, burnt sugar, molasses. Taste - Sweet, malty, light yeasty feel, dates, raisins, light medicinal feel end with a little alcoholic warmth. Okay but the medicinal notes not for me.

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 12/12/16, had 3/11/17.

Pours a cloudy, dark amber, with a one and a half inch foamy head and a good amount of foamy lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, cola, raisins, brown sugar, spices, light malt and dates, slight banana, light black pepper in the head when warm. Taste is malt, yeast, some dates, brown sugar, raisins, caramel, coriander. A little bready, fairly sweet. Smooth, fairly creamy, a good medium body. well carbonated.

Good, and I enjoyed it, but the dates are under utilized, and dates seem to be the selling point of this. Just lacks intensity. Good price point for The Bruery, worth a try.

Out of respect for all the great ales The Bruery has produced, I give no review. This needs more aging and less sugar. A more complex yeast helps too

On draft. Looks and smelled quite inviting. Had the proper elements until the taste. Really sweet, tons of candi sugar and no real balance. The sweetness is borderline headache inducing.

Nice example of a Belgian Abbey done in America. Great quad complexity. Nice smell. Very easy to drink with a nice finish.
