750ml served in The Bruery's tulip. Served a bit cooler than the recommended 50F.
A - Beautiful mahogany with ruby red highlights, good clarity, big carbonation streams from the bottom. Small off white head fades quickly leaving spotty lacing.
S - Sweet potato, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins. Some fruity esters from the yeast. Clean fermentation with some floral notes as well as it warms.
T - Wow. Sweet malt backbone is perfectly spiced. The yams are there but not overpowering. This brew shows loads of malt complexity and hides the big ABV really well. The belly warms instantly however. Black figs, yams, raisins, allspice sweetness. There is a mild bitterness to keep it from being cloying sweet...
M - Medium bodied, huge Belgian hyper-carbonation scrubs the palate, super dry and crisp finish leaves you puckered for more.
D - Despite the huge 10.5% ABV, I will give this an above average. It has made me re-think my position on fruit/vegetables in brewing. Very well done!

750ml (1pt 94 fl.oz.) bottle. Tripel Karmeliet Oversized Chalice glass. Pours brown in color, reddish ruby to the light. Headed by beige crown showing fairly good retention. Toasted & caramel malts, figs, dats, ripe orange pulp hues, nutmeg & herbs are displayed on the aroma profile. Toasted & caramelish upfront. Full body. Soft carbonation. Flavor of molasses, maple syrup notes , brown sugar, slight phenolic touch & anice hints are balanced by herbal bitterness in the middle. Sweet no-cloying finish. Gentle warming, no harsh, kind & sugary ABV through the throat. Ripe fruit apricot-like on the aftertaste.
