4.45/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 11.2 oz slim small bottle into a snifter.
Color is deep grayish brown with a lot of cloudiness and suspension. Yeast settles at the bottom. A lot of it. Head is about two fingers thick of off white to tan colored porous bubbles typical of Belgian beers. Good retention. Little lacing left by the receding head.
Aroma is more subdued than I would imagine from such a world class 'Belgian' beer. Strength is good but not excellent. A lot of resins. A good amount of malts. Strong yeast. Crisp notes. A huge mix of various dry nuts. Slight warmth and booze.
Taste is of dry nuts, slight caramel, a lot of dry fruits and yeast. Booze is apparent as well, but for a 11.2% brew, the alcohol is not significant. Good warmth. Heavy stuff. Finish is semi-dry and semi-sweet at the same time.
Mouth feel is medium bodied. High carbonation. Very nice texture. Strong on alcohol and warmth. Very heavy stuff.
Excellent brew. Complex, yes. World class? - may be.

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
