4.6/5 rDev +14.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
a - dark and clear with a two finger, frothy head. Does a cool bottle clay count for appearance? Probably not, fair enough. Head drops down but a small 1/8" cover remains.
s - standard belgian (good) with some sweet raisin in there. Points for a complete lack of alcohol notes on the first glass while still a little cold.
t - dark, toasted malts play the leading role. A little coffee. Good blend of sweet, sour and bitter without any jumping out ahead. Same on the aftertaste. Every sip leaves me salivating for the next one. Outside of a little mouth numbing you'd have no idea about its 8.5% ABV. The only thing keeping it from a 5 is that maybe, MAYBE it's a little too sweet.
m - medium body with a creamy carbonation. Nice.
d - Very solid. This bomber will be savored tonight. I'll have to thank the buddy that recommended this to me. Tasty with an excellent ABV masking.
