750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/6/2013. Pours light hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, apricot, banana, caramel, brown sugar, toast, bread, clove, herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, apricot, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, bread, clove, herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, apricot, banana, caramel, brown sugar, toast, bread, clove, herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian strong dark ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
