330ml slim brown bottle with the usual wacky De Dolle labeling. Dated "Spec Brew 2005" on the cap. Sampled November 10th 2006.

Pours yeast-laden golden brown with no head and thin sticky lacing (not that you'd expect tons of head in a twelve percent beer). Smells something like a Belgian barley wine might. Heady and sweet oak-edged alcohol precedes caramel-dipped citrus and cherries. Flavor is sweet and sugary. Full of caramel and butterscotch, yet balanced with spicy alcohol. Leaves behind an enveloping liquor-like warmth. Smooth and creamy body with gentle tingling carbonation. Very nice assuming you don't have a big aversion to diacetyl.

I'm not really good at this beer geek talk but..

I just had this and thought it was pretty damn good. Very belgian in aroma, a bit thin in mouthfeel but the finish was distinctive and quite enjoyable. My experience with this brewery has been lots o' hops but not so with this one. Malty, fruity and too quick down the gullet.

12%?? If I didn't just walk into a door, I would have never known!

Enjoy.
