Poured into my much-loved Duck-Rabbit snifter

A - Dark, brown-red with a thick, creamy tan head that quickly dissipates, leaving a slight haze on the surface.

S - Dark dried fruits (raisins and figs), medium-heavy roasted malts and a little bit of brown sugar.

T - More raisin and fig. Black cherry notes get stronger and stronger as this one warms up. Roasted malt and a little bit of cocoa powder. Bit of alcohol floating around.

M - Medium-heavy body with surprisingly high carbonation that really makes this a dangerous beer. Dry finish.

D - Amazing and complex brew, could sip on this all night! I do, however, prefer the 10 to this, the 10 being more of a dessert in a bottle. Still, this is a delicious beer and one of the benchmarks of the style.

Dark caramel brown, hazy. Big off white head, recess fast, some lacing. Dark fruits, sweet malts. Spicy, earthy flavor. Licorice. It's Belgian and good.
