very dark. nearly black, brownish on the edge when held to the light. big beige head settles quickly, but remains a nice thin layer. such a simple, unassuming little bottle, boring plain label, normal-looking dark beer. amazing and hard to believe this is my highest-rated beer, currently number 5 on the best of BA list. and also the most expensive beer i've ever bought.
huge belgian smells. fruity, yeast, alcohol ...s'mores? smells very sweet, complex, hard to describe. raspberry chocolate, plum wine. some hints of malted milk, whoppers. maybe even a tiny hint of coffee roasty stout malt. wow this is one serious mother quaffer.
taste brings more surprises, including a dry bitter finish. high abv is very obvious, but works with the flavor, isn't too distracting. big, full-bodied chewy mouthfeel. this is way more intense than the couple of quadrupels i've had so far, and a great example of a beer being so solid and powerful it can stand on its own. i'll take one of these with nothing else. no food or smoke, just a bottle and a glass, this beer kicks ass.
