Served in Chimay goblet
A - Pours an opaque and hazy deep chocolate brown in the light, but near black in dimmer lighting. Two fingers of solid head that has good retention and leaves limited lacing.
S - Extremely strong smell, the second it poured, I could catch the scent invading my nose. A strong fig note is the first thing I noticed, but it gives way to a roasted malt, nearly stout type character that really distinguished this beer.
T - The roasted malts are really evident here off the bat and it leaves that dark fruit taste on the backend. Almost the exact reverse of the nose. The yeast tastes a bit more buried than in other belgians, but it shines through eventhough the roasted malts steal the show and make for some really interesting dark fruit flavors.
M - Heavy body, creamy, and yet still has a bubbly carbonation to it.
O - A quality quad that qualifies for quenching the belgian palatte. The alcohol is slightly muted by the overall strength of the flavors that come through on this offering.
