DRAFT REVIEW: Judgment Day

From its tantalizing aroma to its luscious swallow, Judgment Day’s packed with rich Belgian character. Sherry, raisins and a touch of leather carry subtle hints of smoke, culminating in an elegant bouquet. Sugary dark fruits—think cherries and raisins—splash down and seep into rich toasted bread notes. Subdued cocoa deepens the profile while alcohol adds sharp pepper throughout the swallow and warmth deep in the chest. This beer’s big in flavor and alcohol, but it never loses its balance.
