Served from a 330ml bottle to a tulip
A: Very hazy brownish red color. Almost opaque due to the yeast and general cloudiness. Two finger head comprised of large bubbles. Bubbles were constantly streaming up the side of the glass.
S: Delicious. Sweet caramel like malts a tad of nuttiness and some dark fruits. Some alcohol is noticeable.
T: Primarily a malt orientated beer. Caramel and sweet tasting malts being dominant. There was also some nuttiness as well. The Belgian yeast character is also very evident in this beer and draws out figs, prunes, and dates. Its almost reminiscent of a red wine in its fruity complexity. Bitterness is low. Alcohol is semi present and could be perceived as lower
M: Very carbonated and bubbly providing a crisp and neat mouth feel. Pretty dry as well but that is probably due to the high alcohol.
O: All around this was just a damn good beer. I'm going through a little Belgian phase right now and this just helped me stay in it. Would definitely buy again but would look more towards pairing it with a good meal instead of on its own.
