Vinous, lightly acetic aroma, with dark candi sugar sweetness. Esters of banana and pear add complexity.

Flavor is very malty initially, lightly sweet, with a deeply toasted, finish and moderate bitterness and spice in the aftertaste. Notes of pear, banana, and tart cherry surface late.

Would prefer a bit more tartness or sweetness...or both. A bit weak in flavor.

Bought a big bottle (unspecified anywhere on the bottle about how many ML, oh well, not my fault) at a local bottle shop in Juneau, AK (Breeze In, Valley location).
Anyways, figured it was Christmas Eve, why not, right.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a good finger's and a half worth of foamy off white lacing after the head died off.
The smell had a decent baked chocolate to light ginger spice to it.
The taste was semi-sweet with a light spice (ginger - maybe). There's a sweet wet chocolate aftertaste leading to a sweet chocolate finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation is super smooth, holy moley, this one is super smooth.
Overall, holy crap, this is so smooth. I dig it as a Belgian Dark Ale, it works and I'd have it again.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a mini snifter.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing.

S- Dark fruit notes including black cherry, currant and blackberry. Faint spice.

T- Very balanced flavor of toasty malt, slightly sweet dark fruit and more mild spice. Hint of oxidation.

M- Slightly dry and a bit tangy. Medium-high carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Pretty good but not anything super special. Easy to drink for the ABV and has all the right flavors to satisfy your BSDA craving.

This is less “craft” and more upscale than the normal La Rulles. It has less chunks of raisins. It’s more filtered. The aroma is less strong. The flavor is less strong. The raisin aroma is diminished. It has a floral aroma. More alcohol. A big head becomes a thinner but not flat. Medium to high carbonation. Bitter. I prefer the normal La Rulles.

Large beige head that settles in a lumpy way. Ruby-amber color and predictably cloudy. Good ring lace.

Semi-sweet with the smell of milk chocolate and darker (deeply toasted, but not burnt) malts. Some alcohol and yeast in the background.

A dark malt start with a rich toasty flavor. The swallow has a mild bitterness with a berry-like touch. Thin bodied which is enhanced by the notable alcohol presence. Low carbonation.
