On tap at Renegade poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roastiness, licorice, light yeast and light fruittiness. Mouthfeel was medium bodid and smooth. Flavors of toffee, roastiness, carmel, light fruittiness and light yeast with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

dark and delicious, this one pours a semitransparent dark brown color without appearing too thick. small off white head. smells like belgian yeast, brown sugar, and dark malts. flavor is similar to the smell, but with a bit more residual sugar, and a really clean finish. feel is good, well carbonated and just a tad heavier than medium bodied. the 8% alcohol is well hidden as well, and this one can sneak up on you if you dont take care. excellent brew.
