4.05/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
After removing the cork from this bottle (which has sat undisturbed in the cellear for quite some time), it started spewing out everywhere. luckily, not much beer was lost.
appearance (once in the glass) is nice, a good sized head and it has a medium-brown-amber colour to it.
aroma is whole bunch of sweet caramel malts, with just a touch of belgian yeast smell.
taste: a good alcohol bite at first, subsiding a little to let some really sweet malts shine. lip smacking taste. there are some flavours of honey, wheat, apple, and pear, and caramel chew. very tasty despite the alcohol flavour predominance, which took it from 4.5 to a 4 for taste.
mouthfeel is very good, just the right carbonation and a good thick thewy body to compliment the flavours. drinkability for a brew that is tasty like this is obviously going to be high.
I do really like this beer.

4.06/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.4% abv.
Appearance: This is a very hazy beer with a brownish tan color and a quick fading off white head. A quick swirl is needed to keep some foam on top. Lacing is minimal and very slick.
Smell: Right up front there is a big raisin like fruity sweetness. This is backed up by bready yeast and malt notes.
Taste / Palate: Now on the tongue the bready Belgian yeast notes hop out first. Dark fruit, raisins, plums and apples move in with sweet maltiness. In the middle there is an attempt by the hops to come out and play but the yeast notes and malt notes and now some sweet boozy notes hold out and finish strong. The body feels smooth with lots of fine carbonation. Just right for a big Belgian Ale.
