Beautiful and typically Belgian explosion of thick, tight-bubbled tan head. Aroma at this point of the review is very faint, no doubt due to the coldness of the beer... let's see where it ends up.
Deep malt taste, strong carbonation, a bit thin in the mouth, but smooth and slick.
Head is amazing. I had some left in the bottle, and just poured some more into my Corsendonk Christmas Ale glass, and the head has exploded again, and is now fully one half of my glass and, if I don't disturb it, I'm not sure that it will ever die off.
Alcohol is not overpouring, but you certainly can taste it. A fine sipping beer.
Aroma is rising now as the beer warms. Raisins and malt... a touch of bread...
