look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark red brown amber. Massive carbonation, overflowed the bottle on opening. Large light brown head that slowly dissipated leaving lacing. Aroma of dark and light fruit, Belgian spice and yeast, malt. Taste is dark fruit and malt, light brown sugar. Flavor somewhat attenuated on the finish. Overall pleasant and interesting, but the intensity of the flavor is somewhat lacking. Light to medium mouth feel. A pleasant Belgian ale.

First had: on tap at ? (either Eulogy or Monk's, I assume)
(This review is from a recent tasting.)

A cloudy, dark, reddish-brown liquid with a healthy puff of light tan head that receded to a patchy layer and left a bit of soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark sugars, malts, some cocoa hints, and some herbal/earthy hop notes. Taste is sugary, nutty, caramel, bready yeast, bakers' chocolate, hints of dark dried fruits, earth, herbal hops. Medium body, easily drinkable, very nice overall.
