A- Dark brown color with an off-white head.

S- Dark fruits, honey and a little chocolate.

T- Stone fruits (plums & cherries) sprinkled with dark brown sugar with a hint of coffee. It's also a little spicy, like Dr. Pepper, and I mean that in a good way. It's a real good belgian strong dark ale overall that has a medium body.

Food Pairing- Would go great as a dessert beer or with a cheese plate.

I found this one to be a little better than the Local 1. The beer poured out as a soft muddy looking brown color with a very light tan colored head on top. The smell of the beer gives off some interesting citrus notes along with some more earthy tones also. The taste of the beer is pretty nice also. It's got a pleasent sweetness to it along with a soft Belgian yeast flavor too. The dark malts mix well with the lively bright fruit nots in it. The mouthfeel is soft and very drinkable. Overall this beer is quite nice I think. I would drink it again.
