From memory, tried this last month, and I recall being very impressed with the flavor of this beer - it had a fruity flavor, not your standard BBA Belgian dark ale that Kane does so well - this one stood out. I hope to try this one again at their brewery - hopefully they have a few more kegs of this stashed away for future anniversaries...

Tons of complexity from the blend. A nice quad is the base, with some potent dark fruits and Belgian candied malts, with notes of smooth bourbon, oak all throughout, a slightly tart bite near the finish, slightly lemon like, and zero presence of alcohol. Delicious.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Brown body. Medium khaki head. Wispy surface.

Smell - Vanilla. Belgian fruitiness. More vanilla. Bourbon.

Taste - Bourbon. Bourbon all over. Some sweet fruitiness. Then bourbon. Oaky in the back and a hefty caramel and fruity sweetness comes back in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - We had the two other versions of this last week and I'm trying to review this without comparing notes. This has a lot of bourbon, but I don't remember the other versions having this much fruitiness.

Spicy, full and devilishly irresistible, Kane brewers pull no punches with a massive fruit and spice medley that's woven with vinous acidity, savory sweetness and a brazen booze character.

Its dark garnet pour casts a hazy veil as its creamy eggshell froth pulls forward and caps the rim. Rich aromatics of dark, dried and pitted fruit fuse with peppercorn, red wine, light clove and fresh-grated white pepper all hover above the sweetness of spice cake and hard candy.

Its full body billows on the middle palate, unveiling the candied taste of dried figs, dates, raisins, plum, blackberry, currant, apple and cherry. With its caky richness reining in the fruit, a fruitcake notion transpires. But this its lavish taste is countered with the spice of red wine tannin, peppercorn, dry oak, clove, lightly smoky cumin and unmaskable, powerful booze.

Patient in finish, the decadent ale slowly relaxes and dries to a malty-dry position on the palate. Prickling heat teases to tastebuds as its duality of fruit and spice play out deeply in the gullet. Echoes of merlot waft above the palate and evoke a long and contemplating exit from the mouth.
