murky amber color with a huge, two inch plus head of off white yeasty foam on top. Nice retention as it hung around for a good long while.

spicey and yeasty. Alot of nutmeg, and fruit notes were very prominent from the start. Lively aroma, you could tell there was a nice amount of yeast in hear. A touch of alcohol was also present at first, but seemed to mix out as it warmed up.
very smooth. Not even a hint of the alcohol inside this one. It was just a very spicey belgian. Made your lips tingle a bit, this one tasted alive still, very nice. It had a good earthy grain quality and a touch of some light fruit. Very nice balance.

Poured from a corked 750ml bottle. A nice pop when the cork is released with some smoke coming out of the bottle. The head is fluffy and white but makes its exit rather quickly leaving a peaceful golden color behind. The aroma has the presence of candied sugar, plum, apricots and pears with a mirroring flavor profile. The hops are crossed up in the sweetness but are noticable on the spicy side. The sugar hangs on the palette with the heat from the alcohol then fades to the back and finishes on the dry side. The fruity sweetness and subtle hop bitterness blend well for a good beer.
