Dark Belgian Ale
Ratebeer 3.99 99th percentile
Beer Advocate A-
This was a little sweet for a strong Belgian, but still enjoyable. The tastes and smells are similar; alcohol soaked cherries, plums, bourbon and brown sugar. Very full mouthfeel and complex; every sip provides new flavours. As it warms up a little spice and earth rolls around.
Surprisingly it fades dry and quickly for a big tasting beer. The aftertaste is like a spicy caramel apple.
Alcohol Content +1 11.5%
Big Belgian styles are my favourite and this one did not disappoint.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Still in Seattle..still drinking lots of good beers
What can I say it is a solid big Belgian style and meant to be shared.
