2.9/5  rDev -27.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bought a bottle of this at my local beer store. Comes in a cool ceramic bottle like the tremins.

Appearance is a dark red/purple color with a head that dissapeared very fast to nothing. No lacing at all.

Smells of slight hoppyness and Belgian candy sugar. Some dark fruit notes.

Tastes like it smells with a little more hoppyness then probably should be in this style. Most in this style are sweet and smooth but this I'd slightly sweet and kind of bitter.

Mouthfeel is too carbonated for this style. At least my bottle feels this way.

Drinkability is not very high since I don't feel this beer follows its style very much and I don't feel like I could drink very many of these.

I picked this up at a local Spec's after seeing it online a few times. I thought this was a pretty good beer overall, but after a while the herbal and spice flavorings made me like it less and less. However, I would drink it again as it was something different and still good.

Very dark brown with big off white head of foam.

The smell is bready, spicy(cloves), somewhat pungent.

Bread is big in the flavour, has some cloves, kind of fruity that gives me a hint of tartness. Super carbonated.

Overall, I like it but the flavours are a bit on the mild side. I think this is a bottle from 2010.

4.19/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Cellared 3 years

Pours brown in color with a slight burgundy hue. Head is half a finger tan and has great retention.

Smell is great, loads if bready malt forward along with some really nice Belgian esters of bananas and plums. Lots of Belgian spicy and yeast aroma in the end.

Taste follows nose with bready malt forward. Spicy phenols of clove and other various spices. Finishes with some yeasty dryness and a fair amount of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is well balanced. Moderate carbonation medium bodied Dry finish .
