On-tap 9/24/2010 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color, with a large dense off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruit, brown sugar, caramelized malts, some Belgian yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of brown sugar, dark fruits and caramel followed by a bready Belgian yeast backbone and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is very mild but very complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down dangerously easy, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a very good darker Belgian style beer to drink for a very long time.
