Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a goblet. No date available on the bottle.

Pours a deep rusted ruby color with a nice off white head that dissipates slowly. Visible lacing around the glass, as well as somewhat decent head retention.

Smells of bready malts, beautiful belgian yeast, and stale dry hops. Really nice nose on this beer.

Tastes amazing! Great malt flavor with a well balanced hop profile to round out the sweetness. Sweet enough to be characteristic of the style but to too overwhelming.

Feels prickly on the palate that rounds out and finishes smooth. Super drinkable for a 9% abv beer. Can definitely sneak up on you.

Overall one of the best belgian Strong ales I have ever had. Picked up 4 bottles of this and will age the other three to drink over the next few years.

Cheers!

Sort of muddy orange and a thick voluminous off-white head.

Vinous, raisins, berries, plums, and brown sugar and a touch of wood. Well nuanced beer.

Warm and full of dark fruit flavors like that is expressed in the aroma, bready and spicy. Medium bodied.
