I tried this beer at the brewery on tap, and thought it was good, but not necessarily exceptional. Nonetheless, I bought a bottle and took it home and kept it in the fridge for a few months for an occasion to share the big bottle. Much to my surprise, upon crackin it open, the taste and feel seem to have been much improved. I'm usually a dark Belgian fan, but this is a golden that I would definitely get again. Very rich, complex taste the second time around, much more akin to what you would expect from a true belgain style brew. Taste is sweet and nutty, but not overpowering. Feel is very nice, at least from the bottle. Not much head, but still well balanced. Very pleased with the improvement of a little bottle conditioning.

A: a deep, dark brownness that begs to be drank... although my wife doesn't like beer, this is by far her favorite color

S: some darker fruits, hint of chocolate, with a bit of carmel going on... mellow malt-hop blend that makes this a very pleasant botle to open..

T: where the nose leads, the palate follows. A great tasting dubble..some caremal w/ a hint of chocolate...blended with raisny-plum fruit notes... a nice little complex sipper!!

M: My mouth said yes! A great bodied beer here.

O: Although I can't buy it in Illinois, I'm glad I was able to get one out here -- Thanks Chris! Looking forward to trying the other Iron Fist offerings that were waiting for me on the doorstep after work... A beer, and brewery, it appears to keep an eye out for as I'm sure you'll enjoy-

** Sidenote: Each of my colleagues whom I've shared the bottle with today has enjoyed a new brew from the Westcoast... witha smile!
