Appearance: dark brown almost black in color with a short 1/4" head.

Smell: roasted tones with vanilla and chocolate.

Taste: roasted malts, chocolate. vanilla, a hint of bourbon, some dark ripe fruits and a bit of alcohol create well balanced beer. Some yeast and candied sugars arrive late. Bitterness is moderate.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and a bit dry late. Aftertaste is long lasting.

Overall: a nicely flavored Belgian ale that is easy to quaff and very satisfying. Definitely worthy of a try.

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was an inch of creamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing at all.

S: A subtle aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, and malt. Nicely done smell.

T: Like the smell, the flavor was a low key, yet tasty, affair. A good amount of chocolate, roasted malt, Belgian yeast, and dark fruit. Not as aggressive as some of the Belgian BSDAs, but well done and tasty nonetheless.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, enjoyable beer. Drinkable.
