Definitely my favorite so far. Sweet and thick but still has the kind of kick I like. The subtle banana favors blend amazingly.

Right off the bat, a very particular and complex beer. Sweet and spicy, with carbonation that coups with such. Smell is rich and roasted caramel. It takes a few drinks to get the hang of it's tart dried fruit and spicy cinnamon coriander. Very much so happy to spend my money on this four pack, and glad to be seeing more from COOP Ale Works in our area.

Yummy! This Belgian style high alcohol volume beer is on top of my list. The flavor is full like caramel and aroma is very pleasant. It's pour is beautiful and it's lacy! It's not a beer for those that detect the high alcohol volume. I love it and recommend it on tap!

Sweet, sweet beer here. Brown appearence, not too much lacing, not too much retention. Smells super sweet, cinnamon, spices, wonderful malts. Almost a candy like taste comes through with those rich nutty malts. A little natural sugar, some coriander/nearly banana like clove spice carries a medium-bodied all-star of a beer to its destination. The yeast (Belgian) and malts (Munich? German for sure) make it unique. This one really got me going, better than the past dozen beers I've tried I think. This brewery has put out some stellar material, F5 ruled too. Cheeeers.

Mostrously big with lots of wine and port notes, good bit of hops but not in insane up a territory.

Thus is definitely a slow sipping beer to be savored. Lots of enjoyable alcoholic warmth.

On tap at The Crafthouse Gastropub in Lubbock, Tx. Mid caramel color, limited head, sweet aroma with subtle spice hints. Mild taste, smooth and delicious.

Gorgeous copper/red color as poured from a 12 ounce can. Tiny head. Aroma typical for a Belgian that smells awesome. Taste is excellent. Somewhat fruity and no bitterness. Smooth and smoother. Very nice for a 10 percent-er. My local BJ's Brew house bartender tells me they are getting this one on draft. I'll be excited to try this from the keg. I find it highly drinkable and recommend this one to all my BA brothers.

This is an excellent Belgian Dark Strong. In fact this is the best effort I've tasted to date from a US brewery trying to brew this style. Although it's flavor may not be as complex as an import it is very, very good. Well done Coop, I'll be buying this one again.
