Draft at brewery. Near black pour, small ring of beige head. Aroma is yeast and roast malts. More yeast in the taste, kind of sweet, candy sugar. Some chocolate too. Some porter.

Bottle date 11-28-16. A few weeks from being a year old.

Huhe pop of the cork. Huge carbonation.

Smells like dark fruit and spices of coriander and anise.

Tastes very, very sweet. Dry dark fruit.

Feel is awesome. So frothy and creamy. Again dry.

Solid belgian dark ale.

On draft at via Marconi during Philly Beer Week. Extremely roasty, very rich and perfectly balanced. This is a well crafted ale.

375ml corked bottle batch 10 into a lost abbey teku appears dark brown with no head formation.

The aroma is fruity and a bit oxidized with almost an earthy brett component. Some raisons and sherry with currents.

It tastes fruity like raison, current and sherry with a bit of oak/oxidation interplay. Some molasses and warming alcohol overtake the finish.

This is medium in body with little to no carb. Quite tasty but showing its age which id guess is more than 5 years old at this point?
