4.35/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into a glass
Aroma- Slightly sour smelling with hints of fruit cherry and tobacco. Vinous and buttery
Appearance- cloudy brown with a light tan head. Coarse tan head that dissipates quickly. slight legs on the glass and no lacing.
Taste- fruity and funky. cherry plum raisin blackberry slight spicey-ness (clove all spice). a touch of black Olive maybe... Alot in common with a Port or Wine than a beer. Jammy- but not overly sweet. The Hop character really settles out as it warms. also hints of carmel and molasses in the finish. It is definitely a treat for those into the belgian style.
Mouthfeel- slightly over-carbed but slick with subtle alcohol warming.maybe a little cough syrup-y not in a bad way
Overall- wow I could see myself enjoying this with a cigar or towards the end of a heavy meal I think it would pair well with lamb or prime rib any sort of rich savory dish. I don't know if i could handle multiple pours of this one but it does taste pretty darn good. This style can come on pretty strong and can sometimes be too sweet but I am really enjoying it.

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.
