An excellent Belgian Strong Ale. It pours a dark ruby color, with a\ nice creamy head and some lacing. As the brewery notes mention, it is a maltier beer, with a hint of spice and fruit. The 8.5% ABV is hidden very well and not particularly noticeable in the taste, only your head.

Pours two fingers of light tan head on a dark brown colored body.
The aroma is caramel, spices and brown sugar.
The taste is mild sweetness at first, more brown sugar sweetness middle to end, some figs to finish.
The texture is soft but thicker with low carbonation.
Quite enjoyable.
