look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from s 22oz. bottle into a Chimay chalice.
The color is a dark black with a finger of brownish head and some slight lacing left on the glass.
The smell is malty with some nice Belgian yeast flavor there in the nose. Some nice dark fruits are there in the nose as well.
The taste is toasty with some nice chocolate flavor in the dark malts with some nice spices. This is sweet all over with some nice dark fruit flavor with some banana peel and some nice fig flavor that is steady throughout this beer.
The feel of this beer is a bit medium bodied but is trying to be a little heavier than it is. The alcohol is just the thing to push it over the line too. Big with this 11% punch it is sweet then hits with a bit finish. It is a really nice seasonal beer.

Thanks for tossing this my way scottbreaks! Split with the mrs into 2 bruery snifters. Had the BA version not too long ago and dug it.
a - brew pours dark purple/brown with a nice light brown head with really nice retention.
s- nose is fairly festive with gingerbread and old spice over plum.
t - leads with the belgian dark and finishes with the spices afternthey wash over they flavor mid sip.
m - a bit heavy handed on the carb for a bruery beer which aren't usually this fizzy. That said, this is way lighter than your average 11% brew.
o - overall not quite as nice as the BA version, but not bad. Happy to finally pick up where I left off in trying the beers from this series, but aside from the series, these are fairly run of the mill beers from an otherwise phenomenal brewery. I wouldn't hunt it down for any other reason.
