The bottle was dated 2011. The beer poured a hazy medium copper red and produced an enormous three finger high creamy light tan head. It sticks arround for a long time and leaves some lacing.
The smell is of caramel, toffee, mild fruity hops, raisin and spice.
Tasting the beer, the raisin and caramel and toffee are dominant. Than a mild fruity hop character and Belgium yeast flavors break the malty backbone of the beer adding balance. Towards the end the yeast adds some sour tart notes combined with some spice, maybe nutmeg. The alcohol is noticeable throughout the tasting.
Great winter beer, because it is not overdone in terms of spice etc.
I loved it.
