Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of alcohol, Belgian yeast, slight roasted malt, floral notes, hint of raisin, and a hint of bacterial funk. Fits the style of a Belgian Dark Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level and hint of tartness. Tastes of alcohol, Belgian yeast, slight roasted malt, floral notes, hint of raisin, hint of roasted malt, hint of hops, and a hint of bacterial funk. Overall, weak appearance, but good aroma, body, and blend, with a great feel.

Got this beer while I was in the Richmond VA area visiting for a short period of time, and while having lunch at a brewpub inside the airport decided I'd try a couple while waiting for my airplane.

A nice looking beer-- look was a deep brown, almost black appearance with a nice thick head to it. Smell was very much like the taste-- smells of chocolate, toffee mostly proved to taste just like that. Beer was not bitter at the end at all, a very drinkable dark beer for sure. Feel was carbonated perfectly, and left little aftertaste for such a strong beer.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer overall, would definitely get again.

L: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored head that lasted a below average amount of time. Not much lacing.

S: A decent aroma of dark fruit, vanilla, a little coffee, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of some light coffee notes, some vanilla, a fair amount of the advertised coconut, chocolate notes, malt, dark fruit (plums, perhaps?), and light caramel. Not really a Belgian beer flavor in the strictest interpretation, but an interesting interpretation. Doesn't exactly succeed, but is still a decent flavor.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an uneven beer, but it's oddly drinkable. Worth a try, for sure.

Poured from a bomber into a nonic glass. Very dark in color. The smell was sort of neutral, not over powering but pleasant. Excellent mouth feel. The taste was very good. I buy this beer on and off mostly in the autumn and winter.
