3.66/5 rDev -2.9%
poured 12oz bottle into chalice.
A - Cinnamon brown and dark amber with almost no head. A few spots of lacing.
S - Belgian yeast, caramel, honey toast. A bit of spice and cinnamon.
T - Belgian yeast, plenty of spice and a hint of cinnamon. Brown sugar, caramel, and honey toast make up the sweetness.
M - Light mouthfeel, not as smooth as I expected.
0 - A decent beer, but nothing spectacular. This is what I would consider a decent holiday beer. Not an spiced up winter warmer.

3.53/5 rDev -6.4%
Pours a clear crimson color with a thin head that quickly settled to a thin film. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass. A bit of a letdown looks wise.
Good Belgian aroma. A lot of fruity notes with a distinct vinous quality. Could pass itself off as an actual dark ale from Belgium.
Unfortunately the flavor does not live up to expectations. It is a little heavy on the phenols which distracts from the ester qualities of the yeast. Some dark fruit and caramel notes but finishes a little astringent.
Does not feel anywhere near 9.5% ABV. Feels much lighter than that and is a little harshly carbonated.
Has some good qualities and is almost there, but there is some flaws in the flavor and carbonation. Probably a beer that would benefit from bottle conditioning.
