look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Pours a dark brown body with a slight red hue when held to the light. Crowned by a thick, light brown head.

Aroma:
Sweet. Table sugar and light nutmeg. Raisin and hints of cherry. Caramel and distinctive Belgian yeast. A bit of cola. So far, so good.

Taste:
Here's where it loses me a bit... It's malty and sweet but it has an interesting taste I just can't get past and the best I can come up with to describe it is sour prunes. Dates and figs with a bit of cherry. Plenty of Belgian candies and nutmeg among other spices.

Mouthfeel:
Very smooth and easy to drink. Sweet finish. Light carbonation.

Overall:
While I encountered some flavors I didn't personally care for, I have a hard time faulting the entirety of this brew since there is a fair amount here to like. Worth trying, but if I want a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, I'll reach for a McChouffe.
