Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a light dirty orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a big caramel smell with spices. The taste is full of malt and caramel and the high ABV is apparent.

A: Pours a hazy brownish orange with an off white head. Head dissipates quickly, nice lacing.
S: Spicy caramel, graham cracker. wee bit of cinnamon apple, applesauce, Definitely a Belgian-like nose but subdued esters.

T: Earthy hops balanced by caramel malts. Graham cracker, toast, hint of apple cinnamon. Sweeter than expected but the hops help balance the beer. Semi-dry finish.

F: Medium body, medium carbonation. smooth.

O: I like this beer. It hides it's 8% alcohol well. the malt flavors balanced by the Belgian fruit esters and an earthy hop make for a very different and interesting beer. I would almost consider this a desert beer. I like it.

Poured a remarkably light golden brown, with a about a pinky's worth of head. Smell was hops and candi, not a lot else going on there. Taste was a weird combination of candi and hops. It was very sweet, which did not do much for defining the traditional BSDA profile. Feel was pretty good, about medium body, medium carbonation. Definitely not a winner in my books. I have to say this was an odd take on a BSDA and the weird combo of hops and sugar was a little off-putting.

Pours a murky deep ambee/pale brown producing 1.5 fingers of frothy, beige, somewhat lasting head that fades to a foamy island cap leaving a nice webby coating of lace. Aroma is dark bread, caramel, thin Belgian yeast esters of pear & apple, with subdued notes of clove, cocoa & an even more faint hint of coriander in a background of light alcohol. Taste is fronted heavy to brown bread, pie crust & apple/peach/white grape fruitiness developing & strengthening in the middle quickly followed by a sugary sweetness with spicy hints of pepper, clove & coriander all awash in a light alcohol finish which produces a very dry, malty, lightly fruity aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, chewy & slick, dry & peppery from a combination of carbonation & alcohol spice.
