Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours reddish brown with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty lace down the glass.

S - Smells of bready yeast, pears, dark fruits, pepper, and caramel malts. This one is pretty yeasty.

T - Starts off with a bit of dark fruit quickly giving way to a mix of bready yeast, fruits, light spice, and some caramel sweetness. The booze is ever present, light at the beginning growing stronger as it sits in the glass. Finish is a mix of chewiness and light sweetness, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, chewy feel that lingers on the pallet for some time.

O - Not too bad. I liked the flavors and it was somewhat easy to drink but the chewy feel really began to wear on me as I came to the bottom of the bottle. I may have to revisit this one again sometime.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy brown hue with blonde highlights and a thick 3-finger, white head that lasts forever and lingers into a persistent lace.

S: Strong, sweet, alcoholic aroma with dominant dark fruit scents and hints of coriander.

T: Very sweet brew that is very boozy. Dark fruits are persistent throughout this brew. Hints of chocolate and cinnamon in the background.

M: Very strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Great brew – great flavor, great aroma, all nicely balanced and a good amount of alcohol.

Appearance is a dark orange with a bustling white head and nice lacing.

Nose is floral yeast with a potpourri quality.

Taste is very floral/herbal, with a medicinal soapiness. There is also caramel, and wild yeast.

Mouthfeel is smooth and refined.

Overall, it has a lot going on, and I can see the appeal, but viscerally I did not enjoy it.

A - Amber and copper in color. Pours a small head that doesn't really stick around.

S - Light malt tones with maybe some ginger. Get some fruit notes towards the end.

T - Creamy, malty, cinnamon, definitely a unique taste.

M - Good amount of carbonation. Smooth and light for 8% ABV.

O - Not too bad. A very drinkable beer. I guess I expected a little more. I think this would be a lot better on draft.
