Very Good
Notes: Characterized by a multitude of dark fruit flavors and caramel malt on the palate. Finish is dry and accompanied by light alcohol warming. Our recipe is based on traditional raw material selection and fermentation techniques and is brewed with deference paid to the Trappist brewers of Belgium.

Great example of this style. Light mahogany appearance with a fluffy white head. Baked bread on the nose, rich plum and date sweetness. Boozy finish was very welcome on a cold Michigan night in February. Anxious for more from this brewery in the future.

Very solid Belgian Strong offering. Poured beer was a nice brown/slightly reddish color. Smooth for a 8+% beer and had a nice balance between malts and limited hops.

Pours a deep mahogany color with a huge, fluffy cream colored head. Leaves a good amount of clingy cobweb lacing.

The aroma brings lots of dark fruits and bready malts. I get raisin and plum, and a touch of fig. Lightly tart.

The flavor starts with the bittersweet dark fruits, followed by a touch of caramel malt and bread straight out of the oven. Finishes with a mild hop bitterness.

Feel is full bodied with moderate at best carbonation. A little sticky and syrupy. Finishes with a bit of alcohol warming.

Overall, another great brew from Schilling. Very nicely balanced.

A- Deep ruby in color; like Dorothy's shoes, but more mellow and deep

S- Wonderful candy syrup that got locked away for decades and fermented. Medicinal, syrupy and phenolic.

T- Dark fruity and carmel-ly awesomeness.

M- Immediate Belgian fruitcake with a dry finish and slight warming.

This stuff is the bomb--as the Scots use single malt to ward off the oncoming cold, I choose Dr. Oovert.

From a growler obtained at the brewery on August 20, 2016.

A very attractive reddish-dark amber pour with a modest and fading off-white head.

The aroma is full of dark sweet malts, dark fruit like plum, fig, and dates, but it has a feint alcohol note.

Full body.

The taste has a candied and dark malt sweetness with an added alcohol bite that makes me think of Bourbon barrel aging. The alcohol burn is also there. A warming finish.
