5/5  rDev +19.6%

Served in a tulip glass

Appearance: Dark golden brown/ hazy color little head retention which was concerning at first...
Nose: The nose displays a nice burnt caramel/ malt flavor with a subtle hint of ethanol and that Belgium flare
Taste: Appropriate carbonation. Thick, creamy, and slightly sweet (like a thicker version of a hardy brown ale) with subtle earthy hops at the end that play with the sweetness. I was expecting more of an ethanol flavor because of the high ABV, but was surprised to find it balanced and hidden.

What a beautiful Belgium beer!

A cloudy brown amber with a large long lasting white head on the pour. Caramel malt, Belgian yeast, dark fruit notes along with some citrus orange fruity esters. There is some brown sugar and sweet alcohol flavors with mild bitterness. A medium body, a smooth and mild sticky sweet caramel orange bitterness on the palate. Finish is sweet full flavored. Overall a very well made and tasty ale.
