Pours out foggy amber-brown and sits murky burnt sienna in the glass with a decent light tan head, fading to a ring of foam around the glass, minimal lacings.
Smells alternatingly doughy and estery with prunes and figs coming out strong. Hints of chocolate and vanilla throughout with minor muddied hops.
Tastes moderately sweet up front, torrents of figs and prunes gush out with a stream of alcoholic spiciness. Toasty and doughish malts protrude and coat the whole situation with elastic flavors of caramel and cocoa. Finish is characteristically warm with grassy hops delivering a mild, biting bitterness.
Completely and rediculously smooth and creamy with ultra-fine and razor thin carbonation, full and rounded body.
Definatly enjoyable, well-suited to compliment, or to be served in lieu of, most any dessert. Puts you in that happy place.

Pours a fairly clear caramel with a frothy cream head. Aroma is spicy, with notes of green apple, sharp prunes, dates, and figs resting on a bed of toasted caramel malt. The balance is sharply fruity. Flavor is much sweeter, with notes of plums that are eventually countered by tart cherry art the base. The finish is dry and lightly bitter.

color is a clear, deep ruby. beer pours spotted lacing, aroma is rich and filled with dark fruit, belgian yeast, biscuit, mild spice. Taste is explosive with white cherries, plum, biscuit and clove. mouthfeel is quite light, but slightly cream, so the contrast is beautiful, carbonation is very low. overall this is an excellent and unique belgian experience.

A: Dark brown unfiltered with a reddish tinge, 4 fingers of tan fluffy head, hard to see any carbonation.
S: Dark fruits, floral figs and raisins, and cherries.
T: Awesome balance of dark fruits figs raisins and cherries.
M: Thick, well rounded body that comes and goes wanting another sip. Highly carbonated.
O: This beer is delicious and worthy of tasting. Lonely planet is often wrong but not on this one. Reminds me of Rochefort 8 or 10, but unique in itself. Got in Bruges near beer wall store ‘B2B’, drank Dec 7th, 2013 in Brussels.
