3.8/5 rDev -3.6%

This brew must have come out of retirement because I just brought home a growler of it last night.
Pours a crystal brown with a dense, finely bubbled head.
The high carbonation adds a peppery finish to a not-too-estery Belgian. Caramel, raisin, and alcohol predominate. The carbonation cleans the tongue, making this a very drinkable brew.
Serving type: growler

Cornerstone's chalkboard beer menu stated that their Benedictine's Order Dark Belgian has 25 IBUs and with an ABV percentage of 6.8%. It was served not too cold in a nondescript standard 12 oz. American pint glass.
When the beer came to me, it was 2 different colors. It was an almost black dark mahogany at the top and in the middle, while the bottom of the beer was more of a light chestnut brown. It had an off white 1 finger head of foam that had decent retention that behind a small white film, off white colored rings along the edge of the beer, and a spatter of white lace around the glass. It had a semisweet aroma of juicy fruits, hint of toasted malts, a dab of citrus hops, and then finished off with a whiff of a very ripe banana. Toward the bottom of the beer, I got a few sour cherry notes in the aroma. The taste was that of roasted malts, a few juicy fruits here and there, a hint of dark chocolate, a small drop of roasted coffee beans, and then ended with a very mild taste of bitter hops. I couldn't tell what kind of hops because the taste was small and they left in a hurry. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a slight aftertaste of dark chocolate and those hops that left in a hurry in the initial taste. They came back in the aftertaste, but I still couldn't tell what kind they were. It was another one of Cornerstone's decent offerings. It wasn't too strong, wasn't too light, it was in the middle. Would I drink it again? I wouldn't mind taking another stab at it.
Serving type: on-tap
