Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of spices, dark malts, dark fruit, Belgian yeast and a little bit of hops.

T: The taste is malty and a little sweet and starts with flavors of caramel, dark fruits and spices. Then some Belgian yeast breadiness comes in, followed by a mild hops presence, which all creates a very good balance. This is definitely the type of beer that gets better as it sits for a little bit. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, strong kick, very good representation of style, this is a good stronger Belgian beer that is worth drinking for while until the ABV catches up to you.
