Orange and black label with a freaky bird-like character wearing a pot on its head and eating a leg?? Is this brewed by Monty Python?
In a tall glass, this poured beautifully. Mahogany-orange color, clear with a strong carbonation and topped with a huge, dense head of tan foam. Small lacing left on the glass. This looks great. The aroma has caramel and buttery malts, with faint touches of fermented figs, plums and toasted almonds.
The taste is very pleasant. Nutty with a medium body of malt that finishes with a dark mellow smoothness. Pleasant bittersweet and nutty aftertaste. Im very impressed by this beer. Not too heavy or too light. I could drink this all the time.

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.
