Fruity nose and taste. Slight boozy aftertaste. Flavor profile moves through in a hurry but a lot of different tastes here (citrus, grapes, some roasted malt, maybe even a little mango?). Delightful.

DATE TASTED: November 6, 2014... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: Browns get their one prime-timer tonight, so time to break out the bomber in celebration... APPEARANCE: effervescent off-white bubbles light up an otherwise dark-as-ebony-keys body; two-finger brown head is sudsy and substantial... AROMA: heavy plum and apple early; approximates a red wine with some astringent, brackish notes... PALATE: wow--full-bodied, raking the tongue with a dry finish that demands another sip; warming and hearty; thick and creamy....TASTE: plum indeed, and secondary fruits include apple, pear and lack currants--big and flavorful; stoutish at its finish... OVERALL: a BIG beer that warmly mellows--not as complex as Monk's music, but no argument that it pleases as "Straight No Chaser" might on an autumn night...
