a - pours a hazy ruby red with a bit of yeast still in suspension. gave me a finger's worth of tan head that calmed slowly to a film and leaves a few chunks of lace around the glass.
s - toasted wheat bread or pumpernickel, toffee, notes of spice, some dark fruits. also a bit musty.
t - bready malt with a fairly prominent spiciness. a little nutty, notes of brown sugar, faint notes of raisin. light bitter twang on the back of the tongue. individual flavors come across as being subtle, but there is really some depth to this beer.
m - firmly medium in body with a coarse co2 profile. a little more carbonation than i prefer.
o - really well put together thoroughly enjoyable. seems firmly planted in between an english brown and a belgian dark, and that's just fine. drinkability is good. recommended.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes od raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a very good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Belgian brown ale. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
