4.13/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I think I paid around $15 for this beer. Pour is average enough, no lace, reddish orange color. Vinous malt and hop aroma.

Tastes pretty good, no hint of the alcohol. Lots of caramel malt, dark fruit and nuts. The hops taste pretty fresh, and there are more of them than I am used to in this style of beer. They are earthy, and ready the palate for another sip. Or gulp in the case of this beer. Mouthfeel is nice and light.

This beer lacks the complexity to make me want to just sit and contemplate what I'm drinking, but it has that quality that makes you want another sip right away. The price is the reason for my low drinkability score.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a hazy, medium to dark orange amber with tons of dark particulates from a careful and not complete pour. Two finger khaki head dissipates to about half and then great retention and lacing. Aroma of dark and light dried and frush stone fruit, apples, Belgian yeast and spicing, slightly oxidized and a bit earthy; a hint of sourness on opening dissipated quickly. Flavor is caramel malt, rich dark and light dried fruit, fresh plum and apple juice, light coriander and Belgian yeast. Finishes with an unusual, but pleasant tannin and hop bitterness that is supported well by the other flavors. Medium bodied with moderate creaminess. A full flavored and nicely balanced dark strong that has a great blend of fruit flavors and deftly handled spicing. The finish was more bitter and dry than most others in this style, but fit well with the other supporting flavors. I liked this quite a bit. The appearance is marred by the numerous particulates, but redeemed somewhat by a cool dark orange color. A somewhat different, but flavorful Belgian dark from Italy.

May very well be the best beer I ever tasted. Taste is so rich and flavorful, no strong alchohol taste even though this beer sports a great 8.5 ABV. Pours heavy, nice lasting head, almost as dark as a stout with still an amber color. Very full body, can not see through at all. One taste and you will be hooked. The only thing that held down my rating (which I did under overall) was the cost. WOW! Very pricey, but so damn good. Wish I lived near a source to get this reasonably priced. It would then become a regular staple of mine. For now it will just be a rare treat.
Try it once, you will not regret it!

A: Slightly cloudy, reddish-brown beer. Not much of a head on this beer, but there is a constant stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass which keeps a thin layer on the very surface.

S: Belgian yeast and candy sugars. Very estery and heady.

T: Sweet, the alcohol is very prominent. Lots of fruits, which bring a tartness, a slight peppery spice and lots of earthy yeast. There is a woody, almost oaky flavor on the end of the beer which pulls it through to the end. A complex beer to be sure.

M: Moderate body, a fair amount of carbonation in the form of small bubbles. Creamy, and slightly sticky.

O: An interesting beer. lots of Belgian characteristics, and in many ways it almost seems like a white wine mixed with a barleywine. Probably not worth the $25 that I paid for the 750, but good none-the-less.
