Poured bottle into St. Bernardus glass

Pours a amber color with a 1 1/2 off white head spotty lacing. Great aroma and taste of malt, yeast, caramel and plum. Great carbonation in mouthfeel well balanced.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip glass

A: Very cloudy, brownish red color with a 2 inch finger head, lots of bubbles streaming off the bottom, the head is creamy, tan, looks like a hearty beer. Nice lacing.

A: Smells like caramel, sugar, plums, dates.

T: Wow, there's a lot going on, very complex, caramel, sugary, some bitterness, the aftertaste is like plums, dates, getting some bread, biscuity flavors as the beer warms. I did get some alcohol burn.

M: Very frothy, creamy mouthfeel, bubbly.

O: Very impressed, really complex, so much going on, lots of carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, did not expect this will definitely have to try 6 and 10, and some more Belgian ales.

Pours to a dark rich color, lots of head that could be to my pouring. Low retention on the head. Slight aroma. Taste is deep, rich and flavorful, has kind of a sweet finish on it. Surprisingly the alcohol is barely noticeable for being a 9%. Very smooth to drink. Overall I can see myself purchasing again.
