11.2 poured into a chalice.

A - Pours a dark brown, with reddish tones. Head quickly settled to a thin layer and ring around.

S - Fruity, spicy with a touch of alcohol.

T - Fruity, a little roasted with slight alcohol warming in the finish.

M - Creamy, high carbonation, full mouthfeel.

D - This is a good beer. The ABV is well hidden.

A- Pours a dark murky copper color with a thick foam head that sticks around for a while. Quite a bit of sediment floating around.

S- Lots of spice and Belgian yeast in the nose. Some toffee and a slight buttery aroma as well.

T- I was a little let down by the nose but the flavor more than makes up for it! Rich brown sugar and dark candied fruit flavor with some oak and roasted hazelnuts. Lots of fruity esters and a touch of caramel with a warm alcohol burn in the finish.

M- Medium bodied with loads of carbonation. Spot on for the style.

O- Overall the appearance and nose made me doubt this brew for a second but the flavor came through in the end. A truly nice beer.

A - Has a light plum color with a tall off white head that loses its energy quickly. Quite effervescent.

S - Dark fruit, booze with grain.

T - Figs, dates, raisins and grain up front followed by a smooth and enjoyable alcohol burn. Not as sweet as some of the other Belgians which is a good thing for me.

M - Thick and creamy.

D - This is a nice one. Not too sweet, just boozy enough and complex. A keeper for the night.
