look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a wine glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. Best by March 7, 2017...so I'm wondering if it is alright yet.

A- Three-finger white head with long retention. Ruby red body with hazy color. Beautiful looking beer.

S- Fragrant fruity, spicy yeast and booze. Strong dark belgian beer means alcohol and strong yeast character.

T- Banana, brown sugar, strong boozy flavor. Tasty, but not easy to drink. A sipper. Really quite wonderful though.

M- Vinous and malty, dry finish.

O- Excellent beer. One to sip on and consider the good things in the world.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a chalice glass.

A. It is a deep amber color with a couple fingers of off white head.

S It smells incredibly sweet with some ripe fruit, grape, cherries and finishing with some malt.

T. The taste is less sweet but still some fruit and malt and some spiciness. I can taste some alcohol as it warms.

M. It has a medium mouthfeel with noticable carbonation.

O. It is a very nice beer and I will definitely try again I enjoyed the balance of fruit and spice though it smells better than it tastes.
