750ml Bottle via Michael Jackson's Rare Beer Club.
Poured into a Stone Imperial Stout glass.
Pours a very nice dark brown with very noticeable hints of ruby. Head and retention is impressive. Lacing is great.
Smell is VERY wine like, grape, dried fruits, some sweetness, a very little bit of grassy hop aroma.
Taste is impressive. Exceptionally fruity, a bit of sourness to the flavor which is actually not a bad thing. Some cherries, grapes, apricot are prevalent. The hop bitterness is also very prominent.
Overall, I would say that this is an unbelievable example of a Belgian dark. Perhaps one of the best that I've ever had. However, this is no where near a bock beer. For one, it's an ale, not a lager, but the tastes are really not anywhere near a bock beer. As a Belgian dark, though...amazing.
