Presentation: Dark green whine bottle. Enjoyed in a Tripel Karmeliet 1679 glass.
Very impressive cream colored head, absolutely massive with huge bubbles. Highly carbonated. This beer looks like a work of art. Beautiful!
Aromas of heavy spice (clove, cardamon). Somewhat fruity but the spice dominates the nose. The smell of the alcohol really compliments the overall aroma of this beer.
I took one sip and what can I really say? This beer is freakin amazing! Spicy, fruity, spicy, warming, smooth, nearly perfect. A sweetness from the oats that adds a whole new dimension when combined with the intense spice and fruitiness of this beer.
While this beer is extremely complex, it allows you to experience each flavor individually. The flavors come one by one and evolve in you mouth. The mouth feel is very(!) smooth. Really a great beer!
As far as flaws....well I can't really find any. When I first opened the bottle and poured it I thought it was a little over-carboanted, but I had this beer previously and the carbonation was perfect so I will give them the benefit of the doubt.
The finish is somewhat dry yet refreshingly fruity and mellow reminds me of bread pudding.
One of my favorite beers! Sit back and enjoy!

Beauty incarnate. Light and bubbly on the tough, light and bubbly in a snifter. Smells of banana, clove, biscuit, and a pleasant time about to come. Holds a steady stream of carbonation from first pour to last sip. A sneaky little bugger, too; you'd never guess it's 9.0 abv by smell or taste.
And you can find it at Costco, too, at least in Michigan. Never would have thought, but never more appreciative.
