Poured into a Rock Art tulip. The body has an unfiltered plum brown color with a thin off-white head on top. Light lacing is left behind. Looks great for a dark Belgian.
The aroma is filled with oaky, dried figs, caramel sweetness and light cloves. Cherries, plums and mocha chocolate. Nice woodiness with a touch of smoked malt.
Tipping back the glass coats my tongue with creamy, smooth, oaked fruits, vinous chocolate and light alcohol. Caramel and oak barrel with a touch of coffee. Belgian spices linger in the background. A delicious mix of notes. Not sure if this is a Belgian quad or Belgian strong dark, but either way it is excellent.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with light carbonation and light warming alcohol. A touch of spice and bitterness. Almost velvety.
This is a very drinkable big beer and the bottle size is about the perfect serving size. I really enjoyed sipping on this beer and many thanks to sleepydave for bringing this over. I still haven't cracked one of my regular Pannepots, but after having this I'll have to try one of those soon. There are really no flaws associated with this beer and I think it has just become one of my favorite Belgians. I will definitely have to seek out another bottle of this.
