Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sitarist on 12-30-2010

Dark ruby brown Belgian style strong ale with complex flavors reminiscent of dried fruits. The sweet hints of raisin, fig and plum are accentuated with rock candy sugar then warmed away by the strength of the dry alcoholic finish.

This beer is a dark red-brown color with a ruby flare at the edges. It is opaque simply due to its dark color. It grows a tan head to about half a finger with reasonable stay, and some lacing sticks in light patches and heavy spotting.
There's lots of fruit in here along with gentle spiciness and it has a sweet character overall. It develops dryness as it goes, though, while the spices and dark fruits integrate with a bit of tobacco leaf and a mild woodiness. Malts are bready and dry, balancing notes of caramel, raisin, and candi sugars. The dryness leads a bit yeasty into the finish.
The body is medium but cut through by a crispness that's fairly hard. The feel ends up ever so slightly leaning semi-sweet but very close to even. It gets a little smoother underneath as it goes.
