So many flavors, such little amount of beer I have to find them all. That is what I thought about this beer. The complexity was staggering. 11.2 oz was not enough! But I can't afford any more than that. This was a very dark beer for a Belgian and it had a nice, frothy tan head to show its carbonation. Lots of lacing. Smell is strong and has a raisiny, bready flavor to it. Taste is just too complex to describe. It starts out with a tang hit of chocolate and caramel malts. Some floral hops come lightly into the mix. A bready character soon follows. Then fruity sensations run wild. Dark plums and raisins dominating my palate. A rum-like quality is there all along but only increases to epic proportions towards the end. Yeast is quite sour and extremely dry in the finish. This is a beer to savor and sip, very slowly. The only drawback was the price for this. At $10/bottle I can't afford too many of these!
