A - it is opaque in my wide snifter, but was quite red during the pour. Dense creamy head. Lace is good, but not outstanding.
S - Deep, deep notes of rum raisin, heavenly spice notes, and dark lucious boozy malt
T - absolutely smothered by rich, dark fruity malt, which finally gives way to a smooth chocolate finish.
M - tons of alcohol makes for a drying finish, but is otherwise subtle for the most part (well, as subtle as 11.3% can be). Not overly carbed like some Belgians, which is fine by me. It's got more body than your typical Belgian, but no one said this was typical... yet it is still highly digestable for a beer of it's size.
D - Everytime I crack a bottle of this, I am reminded of the Dave Barry quote, "beer is proof that God loves us and wants to see us happy."
An all-time favourite, it never fails to satisfy and amaze me. Incredibly drinkable for such a big beer, I don't have to take my time with this one quite like I do with say a Samichlaus or Expedition Stout. Delicious.
