Purchased this beer at Dunderbaks in the University Mall in Tampa.

Pours brown with an off-white head that is fluffy and bountiful from healthy bottle conditioning.

The aroma is your usual suspects in dark belgian beers. There was a bunch of sugary sweetness balanced with subtle hops, spices and yeast.

The taste was brown sugar, and dark fruits like raisins, figs, and dates. There wasn't much for hop taste. This was a sweet beer.

Mouthfeel was soft and medium bodied. The carbonation was just right.

I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes dark belgian beers but there are many that are more affordable yet just as good as this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: brown-copper color, cloudy and I did have the head retention that I usually have with my belgians in the same glass. low carbonation from a belgian too. looked more like a dubbel.

smell: sublte dark fruit and that typical belgian yeast aroma.

taste: weak. and diasaponited. it's a still a great beer, but expectations were of course high.

mouthfeel: low carbonation... light to medium bodied

drinkability: overall its a nice belgian ale, but not over top like I thought it could be.

A brown body with good tan head, with lace running down the glass. A good sweet malt smell along with some minor fruity hops. A puckering sweetness in the medium-body with some breadiness as well for balance, as this is a sweet Belgian that finishes dry and has hints of hops bitterness on the end as well as dark fruits. Classic Belgian that anyone should try.

Pours dark and rich. Brown cloudy and amber. Slight head that quickly dissipates. Minimal spiderwebbing. Inviting looking.

Smell is very Belgian Trappist; dark and fruity. Hints of fresh baked bread. It smells like other beers this style, which I would normally rate a "average." Yet this just smells more right. More balanced.

Taste is wonderful! Now that not to call it the best beer I've had. It's one of those, "I know I've had better beers, but I really can't remember when." It's nothing against this beer, I've had a lot of different beers, and many are of them were before I found BA. . .

It's got a good mouthfeel. It's smooth, no burn, and no horrible after taste. It leaves a little something to be desired in the finish. It's almost like your tastes bud cry when you swallow it; which does diminish the experience slightly.

I did not give this one too high of a mark for drinkability. Better than average, sure; it tastes wonderful. But it is a higher than normal price, though lower than you would expect, so that's only a small part. It's not too heavy, it's too rich. This is an alternative to wine with cheese and crackers, or a nice way to finish off a good meal. You can definitely put several of the away in one sitting, but not at a BBQ or a big party. It's a sipper, not a chugger. You won't struggle to finish it by any means, but. . . Think of it like eggs Benedict vs a breakfast sandwich. They both have an English muffin, two eggs and ham. But add hollandaise sauce and it become very rich, and you are contented with the initial serving. An egg sandwich not so much, you need the hash brown and maybe some fruit to be contented. This is eggs Benedict, and something like a Guinness would be a egg sandwich, and a Budweiser would be an egg McMuffin. Point being, good to drink, but not one to drink well into the night.
