From an 11.2 oz bottle into a chalice.

A-The beer poured a dark cola color with hints of red. I was a little zealous with my pour and got a few bits of sediment. There was a one-finger, mocha-colored head that thinned out slowly.

S-The beer has brown sugar and cola smell that was not nearly as fruity or heavy as I would have expected. Instead, there was just a touch of dark fruit like raisins, figs, and plums. I also picked up a bit of mineral-like alcohol.

T-A smooth flavor of well-integrated malts with hints of pepper complement the dominant brown sugar and dark fruit. The maltiness gives a little bit of chocolate flavor that gives way to a clean, medicinal alcohol on the finish. The alcohol, while noticeable, is well integrated at 11 point whatever percent.

M-There is a brief burst of carbonation on the opening that transitions into a medium bodied brew. A nicely balanced, slick feel to finish.

O-Very Euro...I dug on the subtle flavors and complexity, but could have used a little more wow factor to really push this into my top tier. That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to drink this again with some cheese.

Poured from bottle into goblet.

A - The body is a wonderful burnt sienna color. The head is effervescent and dissipates quickly.

S - The smell is intensely sweet, with plum, apricot, candy sugar, and freshly-kneaded dough notes.

T - Remarkably complex and balanced! I immediately pick up brown sugar, fig, plum, and an almost almond-like nuttiness. The yeasty flavors of the beer are fantastic. The finish is boozy, but not intimidating.

M - Medium bodied. Hard to believe this is an 11% ABV beer! The carbonation is lively and fizzy.

O - This beer does pretty much everything right. You can tell this recipe has been carefully crafted by the monks over the centuries. It does not disappoint. The beer hides the high alcohol incredibly well. A bottle of this would be divine with a slice of Belgian chocolate cake...

Dark brown in color; opaque. Decent rich head when poured, though dies down relatively fast. Sweet, malty smell - though faint. Delicious, full malty sweet taste. Sweet finish. Easy to drink. Medium to heavy body. Nice light carbonation. Wanted another when I finished! Great Belgium beer!
