12 fl oz bottle
Served in a Kuhnhenn's snifter

A - It pours pretty dark. I would call it a reddish brown. It has some dark amber highlights. I barely got a skim of tan head.

S - It smell like soy sauce and mint. This makes me a little apprehensive to try it. It smells more like a Belgian as it warms. It smells really sweet.

T - The taste is not as bad as the smell. It has a weird taste. I get that soy sauce and mint taste, but it is not strong. I get a sweet, sugary taste that kind of covers it up. The finish has faded remnants of a Belgian strong dark ale. One again, it improves with a warmer temperature. It is sweet with some Belgian spices.

M - Medium with low carbonation.

O - This beer just has some weird shit going on. I'm guessing I had it for too long. It gets better as it warms. I need a newer one to compare.

A: Pours a dark raisin / belgian candy sugar color with caramel undertones.

S: Aroma of sweet cidery beer with honey, spices and belgian yeast

T: Taste is indeed cidery and a bit boozy. Plenty of belgian spice flavors along with honey and caramelized sugars. Plum and dark fruit flavors along with belgian candied sugar mixing with raisin and caramel.

M: Light carbonation medium body

O: its ok, nothing great. Definitely not worth the $7 a bottle tag but glad to have tried it.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, 2011 winter solstice bottling. Pours lightly cloudy dark red color with a small 1 finger off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin film cap. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of raisin, prune, caramel, molasses, pepper, anise, clove, allspice, cinnamon, banana, leather, earth, and yeast spiciness. Very nice, interesting, and complex aromas with good balance. Was not sure what to expect when I opened the bottled, didn’t know this was a spiced Belgian. Taste of huge tart raisin, prune, molasses, toast, caramel, chocolate, banana, clove, pepper, earth, leather, cinnamon, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of dark fruit, molasses, clove, leather, earth, chocolate, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of flavors, with big intensity on the palate; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a fairly creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian Strong dark ale! Very intense with big complexity; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable sipper.
