Color - dark walnut. Medium head.

Aroma- esters apparent and hints of pear and raisin.

Taste- A syrupy and hot interpretation of a Belgian brew. A complete miss and not measurable to any Belgian I've tried.

I have nothing against Real Ale (I've been to Blanco many times). This brew just doesn't measure up to its label.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass), Tasted December 2012.

12 oz. bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise goblet. Edition #002, best consumed by 10.08.13

Big thanks to cfh64 (Brad) for the extra.

A: Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring.

S: There's a ton going on. Fruity yeast, dark fruit, caramelized sugar, and some slight coffee bean.

T: Dark fruits, dark malts, some slight bitterness with a touch of paper. Sweet malts and light caramel.

M: Medium to thin bodied. Was expecting a little more body to this beer. Full flavor, but some prickly carbonation whisks it away pretty quickly.

O: I enjoyed the nose on this immensely, but the mouth feel was lacking. A little too thin and the carb was a little high. Overall it was nicely done though.

Thanks to lnashsig for this one.

App- This poured out a deep brown color. Maybe tended a little in the center to look a little black. A good density and then trailed off at the edges. The head was a small 1/2" with a slow receding look but didnt leave lace or cling.

Smell- Well I am really not sure how to disect all this. The base quad is there. Some deep dark fruits and a little bit of sweetness. Then a bit of the malts come in and add like a small anise. A little bit of a mish mash but still nice.

Taste- Its tasty but just slightly above average for me. This was a good bit of sweetness and then quad came in. Dark fruits a little bit of sugar and then parlayed over into a malty bite with a bit of a Wookey Jack flavor.

Mouth- A bit on the thin side and then with a medium carbonation. The residual flavors are that of dark fruits and a bit of sweetness.

Drink- Just okay. Was hoping for a bit more out of this one.

Poured into tulip glass. Little to no head. Well carbonated. Dark brown, bordering on stout color. Malty in the nose, and indeed on the palate. 10.8 ABV fairly well hidden, though not as much as other Belgians. Nice Belgian taste. A good beer
