Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Served in a chalice.

Aroma: Pepper phenols up front. A nice pleasant spiciness with bready undertones. No hop aroma.

Appearance: Dark amber pour with golden edges. A low white head dissipates quickly.

Flavor: Spicy pepper notes up front, clove, and low fig notes all flood the palate. Soft dark bread malt character lays the foundation. Balance is even with a slight nod to the bitterness due to the phenol character. Earthy hop bitterness. Finish is clean and bone dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Prickly high carbonation. No creaminess or astringency.

Overall impression: A velvet hammer. Dangerously drinkable with tons of Belgian character. Worthy of recognition.
