      Appearance (2½)
      Red-amber. Quite hazy. Huge head.
      Aroma (4)
      Spicy and fruity, like a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Hints of wood. Floral.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Big and smooth and malty. Fruity, with a big apple character. Mild vanilla. Warming. Belgian spiciness carries over from the aroma. Sweet fruity finish.
      Overall Impression (2)
      Matured in sakē casks.

      Appearance (3)
      Deep red, hazy. Huge head.
      Aroma (3)
      Lots of Belgian spiciness, coriander.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Big body, smooth. Lots of caramel malt and lots of perfumey, fruity spiciness. Alcohol is very subdued. Big orange flavor in the finish.
      Overall Impression (2)
      I'll bet this beer would age nicely. Brewed with "coriander, orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla beans". Bottle-conditioned.

    • Date: October 13, 2010 (#8317)
      Package: bottled
      Place: Hy-Vee Stony Brook, Omaha NE
      Score: 16 points
      Appearance (3)
      Amber-brown. Opaque. Thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Spicy, biscuity, fruity, yeasty.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Incredibly fizzy. Surprisingly light body. Lots of sweet malt, lots of spicy esters. Clove, cinnamon. The sweetness and malt flavors go away, but the spiciness doesn't.
      Overall Impression (2)
      Interesting beer.
