Bottle from 28th and Iris liquor store in Boulder, CO. First time I ever wrote a review, but there's a first time for everything. I have enjoyed 100's of different beers, and I like the Belgians in particular. I do like this beer's maltiness and sweetness and high alchol content, but I do like having a little bit of head in the beer. Now I know some beers are supposed to be that way, but this one's lack of a head was noteworthy. That's why I gave the "appearance" criteria a low mark. Otherwise it is good. I think Great Divide's other big beers like the Yeti and Hercules are more enjoyable.

Poured into a Burley Oak snifter
A: A nice hazy dark brown that gets darker with depth. A decent finger width head with minimal lacing.
S: Spicy and sweet. Quite Belgian with what smells like some candi sugar.
T: Typical belgian spice and style that has a nice level of sweetness. Good flavors here, but it has this strange taste in there towards the end. Also, there is quite a bit of of raisins and dried fruit in here.
M: Overall quite smooth but you can feel a lot of bubbles in there that aren't too prickly. It is a bit thin, but still good.
O: Tasty and glad I was able to find it even though I wasn't looking for it specifically. It is much better than the new Peach Grand Cru. I feel like this is either on the cusp of going downhill or just passed it.
Opened this with some of my neighbors and they fully enjoyed it, but they are mainly wine people. Doing my part to share the goods.
