look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy, amber color - lighter then you would expect but very full. Tan lace after a full thick head of foam

Smell: Sweeet, fruity, banana, dates and brown sugar. Very little alcohol on the nose for a 9.2% beer.

Taste: Light, smooth and creamy. Some mild spice like clove along with the banana and tropical fruitish flavours.

Notes: IMO there is a big difference b/w this and its older brother the 10. While some people find this to be a better, smoother, mellower alternative I find it to be a bit too lite on the eyes and the palate for a strong "dark".

Serving type: bottle

4.56/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Ruddy brown with a huge, bubbly light tan head. Eventually goes down just a bit but sticks around for quite a while.

S: Sweet dark fruit with a strong undercurrent of musty Belgian yeast.

T/M: Like the aroma, this is a nice mix of sugary sweet with funky yeastiness. Strong sugar and fruit up front, followed by some bready yeast. Nice prickly carbonation.

O: A great Belgian ale, very sweet and strong and tasty.
