A-Raisin brown. Leather brown. Dirty khaki head. Dissipates quickly. A top cover of thin bubbly foam percolates like a volcano. Faint lacing.
S-Cherry. Malty. Grape skins. Cherry-almond. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Cider. Molasses. Vanilla liqueur.
T-Chocolate covered cherry candy. Malty. Bready. Syrupy. Molasses. Almonds. Nutmeg. Craisins. White sugar. Liquid baking vanilla. Spiced oak bourbon whiskey. Like liquid fruitcake.
M-Spritz-y. Soda bubble qualities. Lovely carbonation gives a warming finish. Crisp and thin body. Thickens. Gets very sticky. Slightly watery syrup in feel when warmed. Oily better way to put it.
O-A slow sipper. Tasty. A must try. Would only buy here and there, it is an acquired taste. A bit sour. Too many raisin, cherry aftertastes going on that feel like said fruits were dipped in spiked molasses. Very sweet. I really like the look, so bold and dark with ruby highlights. A head isn't needed. Sips like liqueur. And the fuzzy, bubbly sensation on tongue and down the chest is amazing. Warming.

An absolute favorite ale from Huyghe brewery. Pours a dense dark brown with a big foamed tan head that dies down to a nice layer with excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruits---plum and raisins, light Belgian yeast and Belgian candy malt. Taste is excellent. Plum and raisins sizzle into the flavor profile with this highly carbonated Belgian delicacy, cola and cherry tastes to the side. Aftertaste of cherries and cola. If one ever has a chance I would suggest trying it on tap----an absolutely fantastic Belgian ale.
