4.21/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chilled La Trappe goblet.

Appearance 4.0: Poured out a deep, dark brown...maybe I shoudl describe it as black with brown highlights. Nice 1/2" head quickly faded into foamy residue on top. Good lacing.

Smell 4.25: Gorgeous. Sharp bouquet that hits the nose once one is withing a good six inches of the beer. I detect smoked grains, burnt caramel, noble hops and lovely Belgian yeast along with a cellar mustiness. Truly a wonder.

Taste 4.25: Front is somewhat dry, with the taste of dark caramel and -around the edges of the palate-- a certain smokiness. Middle is where a wave of treacly sweet malt seeps in and then disappears. Then -remarkably and almost instantaneously-- a wave of dryness along with a taste of noble hops sweeps in and cleanses the palate. Finish is in the back of the palate and features a mildly sweet dose of malt that quickly fades into dryness and tastes of raisins, smoke and grains. Aftertaste is short at first, but then the taste of smoked grains pops up on the tongue for a remarkable and long aftertaste.

Mouthfeel 4.0: The smoothness of this beer is wonderful as is the medium-high level of carbonation.

Overall 4.25: Just a fantastic, multileveled, sensory experience. Smooth, complex and ultimately both warming and satisfying, this is a beer for sipping and savoring. One of the best Belgian Darks I have ever had the pleasure to taste. Highly Recommended.
