750 poured into a goblet.

A- Pours dark brown and settles closer to black in color in the glass, although as the light strikes it, amber hues are visible. The head was foamy and oatmeal in color and held up well in the goblet, which I find generally wrecks the head on beers. A pool of film remains over the body. 4.5

S- I like what I'm smelling here. Very diverse. Chocolate strikes my nose from a distance, there's an oaken quality, brown sugar, caramel, vanilla and raisins. Lots to enjoy. 4.25

T- Hmmm, all those pleasant aromas abandoned this beer on the palate. Most prominent is a peppery yeast that is enveloped in a sweet fig or date type of flavor that is slightly tart. The flavor is essentially the dark stone fruit in a composite form, but somewhat thin feeling, and nothing else seems to be coming into the picture. 3.25

F- The thinness of the flavor is also on the tongue. This doesn't have the creaminess of a quad or many Belgian Darks, and I suppose to a certain extent this beer could be dubbel-like in feel, but I'm just not sure where to place this. There's plenty of pepperiness from the yeast, which is neither agreeable nor objectionable. 3

Overall, the aroma showed so much promise, but the flavor and feel don't pack the same punch.

I had high hopes for this brew. First time ive ever had trouble getting a cork and tie off. Other users have stated the use of a synthetic cork may be to blame for lack luster. Tastes a little bland. Decent brew. Not fond of what is essentially a depiction of satan on the bottle but then again i love arrogant bastard and double bastard ale so i shouldnt be complaining.

On tap into a tulip

Enjoyed at Homegrown Brewhouse

A: black with mocha colored head, head has very good retention and leaves a moderate amount of lacing

S: huge black licorice is by far the prominent aroma, subtle dark fruits

T: black licorice, roasted malts, dark fruits. Not terribly complex but very tasty

M/D: full bodied, carbonation on the higher side, ABV very well masked, and drinkability is very good

O: I really enjoyed this one. Not very complex and not very Belgian in my opinion, but very good nonetheless.
