Looks like liquid caramel with a fat offwhite head that condenses into a thick foam over some visible carbonation in the glass.
Smells of sweet malts, dates, breads and caramel.
Taste is similar to the smell. Some dark fruits (plums, dates etc), very malty, the alcohol is obvious.
The mouthfeel is smooth. Less carbonation than youd expect by looking at it but the alcohol gives that slight warming sensation at the end.
Overall this has a unique taste/consistency to it. Its a nice switch up from all the overdone american crafts Ive had lately. Decently priced, alright availability. I think if this were aged for at least 6 months to a year it would do wonders for this beer to mellow/balance the booze taste.

From a bottle into a chalice, at about cellar temperature.
It's head is kind of non-existent, with even an aggressive pour making just a tiny amount of beige fizz which settles to a ring quickly. However, it's got a pretty copper-like reddish brown body in which I can view carbonation bubbles and a lot of nice sediment, which becomes a really thick CLOUD of sediment once I pour out the last of the beer.
To me it smells like caramel, cherries, maple, and ripe apples and bananas.
It also tastes of tart green apples and ripe bananas to an extent. The finish is bready with a bit of dry hoppiness.
The carbonation is expectedly high, and the body feels kinda medium.
Not a mind-blowing Belgian ale, but nevertheless a really solid one. I'm definitely glad I got to try it.
