Dark raisin brown in color. Poured with a thick beige foam that quickly dissipated with no cap or lacings. Sweet dark fruit aromas with a light booziness as it warmed. Smooth, mellow feel with light carbonation. Sweet dark fruit flavor up front with hop spice through the that carries to the end. Finishes with a sweet booziness and pleasant spicy, floral hop character.

1.5 finger head on a clear amber and brown body. Decent lacing. Aroma is mostly sour dark fruit with some spice and Belgian yeast. Flavor is more of the same with sour but drinkable dark fruit, touch of cocoa and nice malt backbone. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Pours a dark brown with a two-finger cream colored head. Sticks around a while. Aroma of pear, apples, bits of dark fruit, toffee and some alcohol, tad medicinal. Toffee and caramel malt led the flavor profile. As it warmed, estery, fruity with both light and dark fruit notes. Light hops on the finish with a bit of booze.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark red brown amber. Massive carbonation, overflowed the bottle on opening. Large light brown head that slowly dissipated leaving lacing. Aroma of dark and light fruit, Belgian spice and yeast, malt. Taste is dark fruit and malt, light brown sugar. Flavor somewhat attenuated on the finish. Overall pleasant and interesting, but the intensity of the flavor is somewhat lacking. Light to medium mouth feel. A pleasant Belgian ale.
