Haven't had much from the brewery so I bought this single for around 4 bucks. Pours a very dark hazy brown with a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head. Smell is rather sweet much more than I expected reminding me mostly of toffee and melted caramels. Mild fruits underneath. Taste is smooth toffee and spices but thankfully much less than the nose suggest. Body is good the carbonation keeps the high ABV in check making for a medium to heavy body overall.

I would like to try more from this brewery after loving the Belgian IPA and now having this tasty thing I will seek out their other beers.

Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that is way too small for a Belgian ale (even of this ABV) but this could be due to my pouring technique. Smells of dark fruit and raisins but not too sweet. Taste is sweeter than the aroma suggests, with toffee, dried fruit and warming spices. A strong metal-like aftertaste is also present. Fairly carbonated on the tongue.
