look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A-Pours clear deep golden with small white bubbly head that quickly fades to barely a colar around the beer and leaves no lacing.
S-I get an earthy sweet tobacco smell. along with the most wonderfully balanced bananna and clove blend. I get pears as well. Very complex.
T-The pears really come through in the flavor as well as the bananna and cloves. Faint notes of sweet tobacco comes on the finish along with a light lingering bitterness.
M-For a begian beer this is not as effervecent as most (which is nice for a change) it seems to have a nice full creamy body with a not too dry of a finish. Which is nice for a change.
D-This beer goes down expceptionally well for it being 9.5% abv. I highly recommend this beer to any real beer lover.
