A: Ruby brown, hard to see any carbonation in the body, and looks clear as opposed to cloudy on the first pour. One finger of beige head. The foam remains for a long time.

S: Creamy, bananas, dark fruits, fruity and floral, shaving cream, cherries, rubbing alchol, raisins, dates, dark breadiness.

T: Bananas, then a sweet dark raisin almost coke like consistency and flavor comes in, then just pure brown sugar, it opens to figs, hides the alcohol very well for 11%, slight vanilla, clean linen. Little burn in the throat, but very well hidden alcohol. Shaving cream unfolds after several sips. Really smooth.

M: Smooth, doesn’t stick to the mouth in spite of the sugars, medium foamy carbonation helps achieve this.

O: Drank Feb 25, 2014 and this was a 2012 vintage brewed as stated on the bottle from Feb 24th, 2012. Drank in Kunming China, so its practically the 24th in Belgium, and I only noticed this before pouring it and after chilling it tonight. Coincidence? I think not. Its been sitting on my shelf for months.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass

This beer was such an interesting twist on what I had expected. First off the beer pours like a quad, light brown with a good amiunt of head. That was the best part of this beer. After that all I could smell and taste was sweetness. It's like the brewer took tons of sugar and mixed it with a pound of yeast and hops. A lot of these reciews say to age for 4 years before it becomes good. But why would you want to buy a beer you have to age that long before it becomes good. To me if they would have lowered the sweetness it could have been much better.
