Brewed with good friend, Urbain Coutteau of De Struise Brouwers. Urbain describes this work as "Dark chess-nut coloured ale with a nice steady off-white head.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A very dark brown with a three finger off-white head

S- Dark fruits, spices, pepper, floral notes, Belgian yeast, great complexity, can't get enough of the smell, screams drink me!

T- Beautifully complex and very close to the smell. I am loving the mix of the dark fruits and roasted malts with the lighter floral and pepper flavors, great balance.

M- Medium body, creamy, smooth.

O- This is a great beer that exceeded my expectations. I will put this tasting up there with the first time I tried Pannepot and Rochefort 8. I will be stocking up on this when it is available.

Thanks to fellow BA Pahn for the birthday gift!

Poured from a bottle into a Pabst chalice. Color is dark brown, the hue of a fine piece of mahogany furniture. A one-finger, off-white head dissipates slowly and leaves a half-centimeter layer of foam atop the brew. Funnily enough, the colorway of this beer is identical to the walls and trim of my apartment (sadly, not my choice).

Smell is overwhelming with Belgian yeast character, some vanilla, and dark fruit. This is one of the finest smelling Belgian style ales I have ever had the privilege of sampling. Very in your face, and it compliments the taste quite nicely.

Whoa now. What follows the nose is an explosion of well balanced malty flavors. Fruit flavors of apple and raisin, slightly roasty, slightly boozy; perfectly balanced. Dare I say the profile rivals that of Rochefort 10. A faint tartness conjoined with some lingering hop bitterness in the finish rounds out the exceptional flavor.

Honestly, we can stop right here. Jaded could feel like a warm can of Pepsi on the tongue and I would still be impressed. Alas, this is a perfectly carbonated brew, with a distinct, refreshing medium body that only compliments its other characteristics.

Consider this my gateway to the plethora of Stillwater offerings. If dude's other brews are half as good as Jaded, I shall consider them rousing successes.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a clear red-orange amber with a thin off-white head that dissipated to patch foam and a ring around the glass with slippery lacing. Interesting aroma of toasted malt, dark dried fruit, dark fruit esters, almost like a rich porter blended with a Belgian dark. Flavor is dominated by the dark dried fruit emphasizing dates and figs, sweet earthiness, rich caramel malt with hints of toasted malt, finishes with sweet fresh and dried dark fruit, leaning towards a barleywine profile, but retaining the dark Belgian fruitiness and character. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Very nice flavor balance. Hope I can find another bottle of this one. Stillwater is amazing, but combined with de Struise, a sublime collaboration.

Thanks to XicanoBeerRun for the bottle share.

This pours a nice looking murky raisin-brown color with a nice amount of foam. Bear in mind that I got the tail end of the bottle in my pour so I’m also looking at some yeast and sediment kicked up in the glass. But that’s because, as my buddy put it, I like that kind of thing. Heh.

There’s a fantastic aroma of raisins and figs, really more like this thick, dark, dried fruit scent that is in itself just amazing. Tastes fantastic. It’s malty yet light on the palate, thanks to its effervescence. Flavors of raisins and figs and a touch of tobacco coat the palate in layers, with this hint of it’s 10% abv only coming across at the very end. If you can only have one beer tonight make it this one.

Ho- boy, is this a beer, or what! Let it warm up to temp out of fridge and then poured with grand, light tan, sudsy, foamy, frothy, fluffy head and lots of clingy lace. Color is a cloudy dark brown amber. Aroma is amazing: I kept getting different things each time I took a whiff - black pepper, pot, caramel malt, toffee, dates but not raisins, hops, rich black earth, bacon. Flavor has a lot more sweetness and suggestions of the nose characteristics and kept in check by the soft, but still there carbonation. Body is full and luscious. Finish is like flavor with notable alcohol warmth. Definitely a sipper. Very well done.

A – Dark ice tea body with an off-white head. Nice lace and retention.

S – Toffee, walnuts and brown sugar. Nice orange zest accents.

T – Orange marmalade, caramel, and brown breads up front. The middle adds a touch of spice with black pepper. Back end is fruity with raisins, dried plums, and apricot. A bright acidity frames the profile nicely.

M – Great effervescence. Medium body. Sweet, raisiny finish.

O – Simply delicious. There's very little keeping most of the categories from being a 5.

Easter Sunday, decided to go all Belgian-y on this wonderfully chill spring day. This beer has been waiting in my beer closet for some time.

11.2 ounce brown bottle with more of that amazing Stillwater label art - seriously one of the best in the business. Poured into my Tripel Karmeliet glass.

A. Walnut brown, deep and light-absorbent. The tan toasted marshmallow head is dense and even, a finger tall and supported by little rising bubbles from below. A very pretty beer. Tiny lace dots stick to the glass, but the head itself is everlasting.

S. Ahh, this is complex stuff. I added some of the yeasty lees, at first blush Jaded gives up a very Maudite-y aroma, heavy sweet malt, rich prunes and yeast character, mildly peppery. Some alcohol crunchiness too, but this is 10% after all. I'm looking for the wheat and it's elusive; this is a very yeast-driven smell, hearty and sweet.

T. Heck yes this is good. A large, billowing beer full of rich toasted malt, dark, sugary raisins and prunes, finished off with some delightful alcohol heat. The wheat adds deftness here, I think, and the yeast character on display is grand - complimentary, but reserved enough to know when to quiet down. Spicy, peppery notes and a minor herbal quality offset the malt sweetness and turn this into a complex, enjoyable delight.

M. Full, expansive carbonation keeps this from being too dense or sweet, while the finish alternates between candi sugar / malt sweetness and candi sugar and yeast driven spicy notes. Has a Weizenbock thing going on too, interestingly.

De Struise and Stillwater struck mithril here. Jaded is a very good beer, and maybe the best thing I've had from Stillwater. I will buy more and you should too.

11.2oz bottle into Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Moderate pour yields a 3 inch, fizzy tan head that dissipates slowly leaving little lacing. Pours the advertised dark chestnut color, and leaves a couple small islands of lacing.

Smell: Floral and fruity... at first. Apparent early on that this beer isn't kidding around; the aroma continues to grow and change for the entire life of the beer. First it's flowers and light fruits, then spicy quad-like Belgian yeast and cola, then some herbal, foresty hops, then a thick layer of brown sugar and caramel, then a mild banana ester and some wheaty roundness, then gingerbread and fresh cookies.

Jesus. With warmth, there's pepper, more flowers, raisins, a mild citrus and booziness, fig, date, plum. It just keeps going, and all of it smells delicious. Complete and utter success. Reminds me why BSDA/quad/dubbel is my favorite style of beer.

Taste: Almost as good as the smell. At first, spicy Belgian yeast with a punchy finish that's kind of bready and fruity. Some alcohol flavor through the front that positively influences the taste. Soon some clove and mild pepper come out. The aftertaste becomes chocolaty and spicy.

It doesn't take long to become clear that I'm not going to be able to pin down an "overall character" to the flavor of this beer, or a "typical sip," or even a dominant flavor. It keeps changing, bringing at least 3 pleasant and intriguing flavors with every sip. Here's a spicy BSDA candi sugar hit through the middle leading to an apple finish, here's smooth caramel and clove with a chocolate finish and long marzipan aftertaste, etc. The flavor, like the aroma, simply does not stop developing.

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied. Very carbonated. Gets creamier with time, which is nice. Not too sugary. Long aftertaste, mild heat.

Overall: This is a beer for the strong Belgian beer lover who doesn't want to get bored while drinking. There is no danger of that with Jaded. You could almost call it "messy" or "confusing" if it didn't smell and taste so damn good. Very impressive beer.

330ml bottle 10,0% Abv.
Served chilled in a tulip wine glass.

Appearance: Very deep chestnut brown body; almost opaque with the amount of yeast haze. Massive ivory coloured head that displays great retention and leaves decent lace.

Smell: Mmmm, I didn't expect such a good nose. Lots of spices (cloves and cinnamon), fruits (plums raisins and apples), cocoa, caramelized brown sugar, a light nuttiness and oddly some jasmine and other floral notes.

Taste: Superb flavour - this beer has really surprised me! Dark caramel, cocoa, nutty malt, plums, raisins and lightly cooked apples, cloves, white pepper and a touch of hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Pretty much perfect for the style - medium full body with a high level of ultra smooth carbonation. An absolute pleasure to drink!

Overall: I'm not sure why, but I wasn't expecting much from this beer. I am happily surprised - this is a superb BSDA and one I will buy again!

hazelnut color of brown, with a slightly reddish tint to it. Very hazy and cloudy and with a good amount of sediment running through it. A good two inch plus of head formed on the top, a nice tan colored pillow like but sticky head formed on the top and really never faded.

Lots of dark spices here. I could pick up even some dark fruits, plums and maybe even a bit of grape in the nose. The deep caramel like sweetness was also present here and gave it a good lifet and a nice fullness. Some apples and plums, maybe a fig mixed in seemed to bring out the lighter notes. Meanwhile, underneath that was a deep caramel like flavor that blended in with a earthy or bready like back. Very complex and yet remarkably smooth

Poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a murky chestnut brown with an explosive fluffy head that dissipates slowly. Nice fluffy lacing left on the side of the glass.

N: Big wheat notes, faint banana and tones of chocolate. Some dark fruit is also apparent.

T: Darkly roasted wheat, banana and notes of fig upfront. Mid-palate brings in some molasses, cola and semi-sweet chocolate. Finishes with a slight earthy hoppiness, tobacco, overripe plum and dark Belgian candy sugar.

M: Full bodied, velvety, creamy, sticky and smooth.

O: This is incredibly smooth for 10%. Beautiful complexity. This is a stellar BSDA!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: nice dark brown with a nice sized head with a creamy toffee color, good amount of bubbles and lacing

S: a bit of raisin on my first whiff but also some fruit and large amount of spice on the end, but not overly harsh, after a few sips I got a large yeast style as well

T: Nice mix with some complexity, you get a lot more of the yeasty bread like taste mix with the taste, still large spice and fruit taste

O: really liked this beer, never tasted its 10% for a second, very well made, will look forward to more Stillwater beers

Poured into a tulip. Pours dark chestnut brown with three fingers of creamy beige head. Real nice retention, this leaves about an inch of foam throughout the drink.

Plumbs and figs with a grape skins in the aroma. A bit of a red wine aroma with some floral highlights. A touch of pepper in the finish. Grape skin and figs on the pallet. A little bit of nuttiness with pepper and a nice grainy finish. Some cocoa nibs is noticeable in the middle.

The body is medium with a bit of tannin in the finish. Nice carbonation.

Overall a nice offering from these guys. Really a lot going on for someone to enjoy.

This brew pours out as a murky brown color with a really nice creamy tan looking head that doesn't quit. The aroma was nice it's like a mix of a saison with some sweet dark malts and fruits in the mix. Some grape and banana specifically on the nose. The taste is sweet up front and just very smooth. The body of this beer is pretty awesome from start to finish. I really like the mouthfeel also. Overall this beer is dangerously tasty. Wish I had some more to drink but the price hits pretty hard.

A - Pours a dark black-brown color with a hint of red and a finger of tannish frothy head. The head fades down slow leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet dark fruits (raisin and fig), some roasted caramel and chocolate malts, some spices, and some floral elements.

T - Started off with a mix of roasted chocolate and caramel malts with some light dark fruits and some spice. Through the middle, the raisin and fig flavors stepped up a bit with some stronger spices, floral flavors, some wheat, and bit of yeast. The finish is a mix of roasted dark malts, dark fruits, spices, and floral flavors that linger.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and roasty with a bit of a warming feeling from the alcohol level.

D - Very drinkable. Really complex and full of lots of different flavors, but at the same time, very balanced.

My first brew from this gypsy brewer. As with most gypsy brewers, the beers tend to be a little on the pricey side, but the upside is that a lot of different brews can be produced and the brews can be quite creative. I'm glad to see this brewer's beers available in Atlanta, and I look forward to a lot of future sampling. I really enjoyed this particular beer- apparently a strong Belgian style beer, but made with wheat. You get a nice dose of Belgian-like sweetness and spice from the yeast and malts, but a nice soft smoothness and light, tight graininess from the wheat. There is also a pronounced herbal and spicy bitterness on the finish that nicely conterpoints the semi-sweetness of the rest of the beer. The spiciness has almost a pepperiness to it along with some clove and perhaps even a slight bite of tgrue cinnammon- warming notes for sure. There is some light tropical fruit in the background, but nothing like the amount you'd get in a strong wheat beer like some of the German styles. The more I drink of this, the more I'm struck by the very tasty union between the warming spiciness and the fruity, smooth, wheat. Quite delicious.

big thanks to JAHMUR for the in person swap at the rosso release.

a - opened my 11.2oz bottle and poured it into a lost abbey tulip. poured a brownish purple with a thick sedementy look to it and a perfect to style creamy thick head. this beer is pretty attractive and almost captures more of a quad look to it. lacing is also quad like and creamy. it's got the look that you only get from an authentic belgian brew.

s - dark fruit, sweet plums and grapes. belgian yeast. a bit spicy and a bit floral, but mostly dark fruit and subtleness.

t - whoa, lots going on. immediately i notice the spiciness followed by the normal dark fruit medley then rounds out with an intense floral thing. very complex and the booze mixes with the floral aspect to create something really unique and different.

m - mouth is smooth and creamy with a spicy kick to it. leaves an alc tingle. very creamy and to style.

o - i'm a very big fan of brian's work and was extremely pleased to get ahold of this beer. i'm also very interested in exploring more and more de struise beers. it is really nice to see than an american can bring to life an authentic belgian style beer (albiet in an authentic belgian brewery) since most american takes on BSDA and quads leave a LOT to be desired. i'd love to see this same recipe brewed state-side for comparison. brian continues to wow me with his ability to brew my favorite styles of beer with a unique and tasty spin.

Wow, what a very nice dark ale. Urbain made this one together with Stillwater New York.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer looks very nice, Deepdarkbrown fluid with the well known Struise head. Great smell and an even better taste. Pinetree and some nice herbs. This is definatly one of the better beers i have tasted the last months. Good sweetness and very drinkable because the alcohol is well hidden.

What a treat i am giving myself. Thanks Urbain!

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a murky light brown color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that doesn't retain long before soon becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thin ring behind.

S- Pretty standard Belgian yeast aroma that's sweet and has good notes of Belgian Candi sugar. Kinda boozy though.

T- Packs a flavorful punch of spice, yeast and alcohol that's married well. The sweetness reigns throughout and there's notes of honey and lavender that are quite pleasant. Not as boozy in the taste as the aroma.

M- Pretty slick, almost syrupy. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- A nice tasting BSDA that benefits well from the mixture of spices.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a cervoise glass. No visible best before or bottle on date. Label reads 'Dark Belgian Wheat Ale'.

A: Three fingers of gorgeous, tight head. So dense at the top I suspect it could support my weight. Startling retention. The beer is opaque, Coca-Cola brown (well, actually it's several shades darker, bordering on black). Smallish bubbles up the sides.

S: Belgian yeast. A touch of grain. Spicy/earthy scents.

T: Exceptional. Quite strong, with alcohol leading the charge, followed into battle by a corps of gently floral fruits. Spice beats the drums of war, keeping the flavours in line and offering a staccato of accents (pepper, vibrant yeast, sharp cinnamon). Earthy hops take a reserve position, ready to rush forward and support any flavour that falters, but never on the front lines or in the heat of battle. Throughout it all, sweet, intoxicating malts support the taste and body, facilitating and empowering the host of other flavours -- the horse, in our metaphor, carrying both man and materiel on its back, but rarely the focus of attention. The aftertaste is soft and fleeting, the wisps of smoke drifting away from the battlefield and simply dissolving, leaving no trace of their presence.

M: A wheaty smoothness presents itself, along with a titillating spiciness and tell-tale carbonation.

O: Even though I love this beer, I don't think I'd want another for a long, long time. Perhaps it my enjoyment was simply the lucky confluence of several factors, but even towards the end of it, I find my appreciation waning. It was glorious while I was in the thick of it, but now that it's over, I find the whole experience rather anticlimactic. By all means recommended, but with a modicum of hesitation.

A: Enormous, light beige head. Burnt umber with some red, cloudy. Looks like dark cherry wood when held to the light.

S: Sour yeast. Grains, some spices. Little bit of fruit. Hint of hops.

T: Yeast and grains. Spices and some dark fruit. Some sweetness/maltiness. Little bitter and dry at the end. Slightly metallic? -that may just be my imagination. Lot of flavors happening here. I think it's delicious.

M: Full, strong, heavy and carbonated.

O: I love the label. Gorgeous looking beer. Smell is kind of faint and not very interesting, but I like the taste a lot. Drinkable. Recommended.

Served in a medium sized snifter

Appearance: Even though I poured fairly gently, the brew still poured with a thick tan head. The body is a medium brown with dark orange tones.

Aroma: I pick up sour plum, grapes and what seems to be dry white wine.

Taste: This starts with a very sweet and smooth red grape and plum front, a fairly spicy middle, and slight dry grain (maybe wheat?) finish. That doesn't really do it justice... this is a pretty complex brew and I'm having a difficult time nailing it down. It is reminiscent of a sweeter Rochefort 8.

Mouthfeel: This ale is just a little thicker than water with medium carbonation.

Overall: There is a noticeable alcohol warmth but I really don't taste it. This is a very enjoyable and, at 10% abv, surprisingly drinkable beer.

Edit: After letting the brew warm a bit, the scent of alcohol is much more noticeable.

Eis Igian,

11oz bottle into a Mc chouffe tulip.

Jaded pours out dirty tap water beige/brown appearing darker shoe polish brown black in the glass. A big heaping of dense tight dark cola fizz that is milky. Good sticks.

Smell is bright at this young stage, a mix of belgian yeast with some wheat and citrus and earthy scents. A bit of nuttiness with warming. I get some fruit and light hop scents.

This is an interesting BSDA/saison/wheat ale. Taste is brighter than the dark appearence would lead on, less sweet. Wheat and earth with some citrus orange. Some bright bready yeast midway with lemon, other fruit. A bit of roast/nuts in the finish. An odd mix.

Feel is a nice medium and goes down easy for a dark appearence. I had no problem drinking this one quick, hard to pace myself. Carb is pretty smooth considering the massive head. A bit of a soft twang on the finish as well.

A great beer in my opinion, Im sure it will get mixed reviews. A semi quaffable drink that hides it's alcohol almost to well

Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty with a firm hint of caramel and a touch of hops. It pours an inviting opaque chocolate brown with a slim pale head. Flavor is yeasty, wheaty and malty and has an undertone of caramel, hoppy and nutty hints, and a fairly strong alcohol nip. Texture is smooth, edgy and minimally fizzy. Finish has a whisper of sweetness within the alcohol bite.

Picked up at some bottle shop in Brugge. Served in a Struise cervoise in our hotel room in Brussels. Not quite a Stillwater glass, but appropriate since it was made at Struise. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderately-dark brown with a long-lasting tan head and some really nice lacing on the way down. The nose brings some light spicing and phenolic character with a bit of nuttiness. Light toast as well. Flavor is slightly nutty and peppery with some bread toast. A bit chewy with a dry finish. Quite nice.
