4.08/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a Leffe chalice.
Pours a cloudy brown, almost purple to me, with one finger of light tan head that dissipated quickly.
Aroma is pleasant. I get mostly dark fruits, some bread.
Taste is more dark fruit, mostly raisin, and a good bit of bread from the yeast. Alcohol is pretty noticeable on the finish.
Mouthfeel is thick, but with very noticeable carbonation.
Overall I'm enjoying this beer, although not nearly as much as the 10. Mouthfeel, aroma, and flavors of the 8 are muted to me in comparison. I wouldn't turn this down again, but for an extra $1 or so a bottle I would definitely pick up the 10 instead.
