3.55/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: deep amber-brown hue with a bit of haze to the body. Head pours a thin finger of frothy tan foam. Decent.

Smell: malty aroma with a good dark-fruit component and a fair hit of alcoholic fruitiness. Unfortunately, overall intensity is a bit light. Still, the composition works for me.

Taste: dark fruit, tobacco and phenolic compounds abound. Alcohol bite is also present. Stylistically not too bad, but kind of messy.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a good creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this beer seems a little bit messy and unfinished, but I like a lot of the flavor and aroma compounds in it. A bit more care in crafting might do this beer wonders.

3.45/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served at 55 degrees into a Duvel tulip.

A: Light head, nice yeast activity on the etch, not very dark for a beer of this style.

S: dark fruit, boozey

T: medium to dark malts, raisin, slight caramel

M: Decent carbonation, light on the palate, not very viscous for a Belgian Dark.

O: Quite a few other Belgian Darks I would prefer over this...it needs some work.

Served in tulip. Poured a nice reddish brown, a bit hazy/cloudy and had a half-inch of off-white head that had low retention and light lacing.

The aroma was solidly grainy with some nice spicy notes. The flavors were similar, but yeasty spice was more upfront and the grain slid into the background.

The body was full, smooth and well-rounded. Drinkability was pretty good, the beer went down smooth and easy and I could see having a couple (or more) of these at a sitting. Overall, a pretty nice brew that's worth your time if you see it in the Puget sound region.
