Appearancehad a frothy head, light brown with excellent lacing. almost black color
Aroma was heavy malt, roasted, chocolate, and strong coffee. Heavy yeast and a little bit of dough. Dates, charcoal, allspice, and nutmeg. Palate was creamy and soft. Long finish.
Really outstanding beer. Not much of an alcohol bite.

Poured into a tulip it forms an easily managed loose tan head. Good retention above a dark brown body.
Plenty of dark fruits but what impressed me the most is this one gets back to the spicy side of the house. THANK YOU. This can be a cloying style and that is what sometimes turns me in the other direction. The peppered angle brings me back. Think of Gouden Carolus Grand Cru and put a more aggressive spiced side and you have Judgement day. Probably the second best Belgian Strong Dark Ale I've ever had and if I had a side by side this could easily take top honors. Fantastic, well brewed beer regardless of wether you like the style or not this is a must try.
Notes: 750ML bottle corked and caged. I have been in a Belgian Strong funk lately so to speak. This has revived my interest in the style. Not as sweet as most. This is complex and a 6 month spell in the cellar may be the key to perfection here.
