Poured from bottle to Duvel tulip the beer arrives a rich brown with a 2 finger khaki colored head with good retention and lacing, looks good. The nose is toasted malts with a bit of dark fruit to accompany the belgian yeast. Similarly the flavor begins with a toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Mildly bitter. The dark fruit aspects blends well with the toasty sweetness and belgian yeast. Finishes sweet with a creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is a very good beer. I would happily purchase again.

Poured from the nifty faux ceramic bottle into a goblet. Color is a murky root beer brown with some reddish tint. Fairly aggressive khaki head that leaves a nice spidery lacing on the glass. Aroma is a well-integrated blend of dark fruits (raisins, dates, cherries), toffee, corn flakes, molasses, clove, hot alcohol. Smells rich and spicy, sweet and only subtly roasted. Semi-chewy or moderately thick body, coats the mouth and leaves a lingering sweetness along with an almost soapy residue. Palate recalls same elements as the nose along with medicinal orange, tobacco, chocolates from one of those mixed boxes (maraschino cherry in particular), wood, floral soap, sesame, light roast or green coffee bean. Wonderfully sweet, nutty, and dessert-like yet the alcohol burn intensifies as the sips accumulate. As good as its lighter and better known stablemate. If I was going to nitpick I'd say that the alcohol is a tad hot and spicy, but my evaluation of this characteristic is partly mood-dependent ... Sometimes the Belgian booze hits that spot square on.
