First beer from this well received brewery. The beer pours a very dark nearly black ruby highlighted brown. There is a very thin milky tan colored collar that clings to the glass.

The scent is of rains, plum, molasses and a hint of cocoa. Very enjoyable scent that comes off as belgian based, but uniquely American. It does lack in complexity of the finest of its style.

The taste begins with a cocoa bitterness and touch of alcohol. It moves to a sweet flavor dominated by by dark fruits, especially plum. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light lively carbonation.

Altogether a very good and enjoyable beer that lacks the depth and complexity of the finest examples of the style. That said I would enjoy having this again.
