After a moderate pour, two and a half fingers of sandy colored head sat on top of a dark brown beer. The head eventually receded but stayed thick up top. A little lacing was noted.

I can almost forget how much I love a good Belgian beer until I smell it. This one has so much goodness to it, I don't know where to begin: A bit of caramel, lots of dark fruit, rich deep malt tones, yeast, a little sugar, wood, and a good dose of alcohol. Yum!

Yeast and spiced bread malts up front. Hint of caramel to accentuate. Dark fruit, oak and alcohol on the back end. So good.

This beer was medium bodied and well carbonated, as it tingles when held on the tongue. It doesn't get bogged down, doesn't get sticky or leave you overly dry. For the style it's... perfect.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a snifter

A: This beer is a very dark brown, almost completely opaque save for a slight reddish tint when held up to a light. There is a large, foamy, off-white head which fades fairly quickly to a ring of foam around the edges.

S: The first thing I detect is a sweet, bready malt flavor. Dark fruit flavors follow: plum, prune and raisin. Maybe a little cherry.

T: There is a smooth maltiness throughout the whole beer. The same fruit flavors I caught in the smell are present here, though they are complemented by vanilla as well. The finish is bready with a hint of banana. Next to no taste from the +11% ABV.

M: Thick and chewy with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: A heavy, interesting beer. Very malty and complex. Alcohol is incredibly well hidden.

330mL poured into CCB Snifter

A: A beautiful golden brown color, with a single finger of hear with a khaki color that dissipates in a few moments, nice lacing with this one.

S: Dried prunes, cherries, and just a tiny hint of alcohol when you look for it.

T: Sweet, much like the nose indicated, cherries and prunes rule the flavor but for some reason i taste a nice amount of milk chocolate. Alcohol is faintly noticeable, this has the alcohol taste of a 5-6% ABV beer.

M: Smooth, carbonated goodness, a slight tickle from the bubbles as it makes its way down to its resting place...at least for a few hours.

Overall: I have noticed that there are a fair amount of beers on this site that have been hyped to be better than they are, but this one is up there with ZD in my top 5. I may try aging a couple of these to see how the flavor changes with time.

a: murky brown with no head or lacing, just a thin tan ring. plenty of sediment floating around as well.

s: sugar, malts, dark fruit and nail polish remover.

t: overly ripe dark fruits with a touch of yeasty bread and lots of alochol.

m: medium body with a creamy feel at first, then the alochol cuts in for a warming wipe your slate clean finish.

o: meh, dont think i will purchase another one. if the alochol were hidden better i would enjoy it more.

When poured into an Orval chalice the beer is a beautiful dark wood color with a short lived medium tan head. Not the most beautiful beer in a glass but certainly adequate. The smell is dark fruit (plum, prune, figs and a hint of vanilla). The taste follows the scent but so well integrated that it takes a bit of sipping to fully identify all that is going on in this very complex brew. This beer has wonderful carbonation and at times I thought I picked up a cola taste and the mouth feel when held on the tongue for a bit was similar to a mouthful of Coke with the fizzy tingly feeling. This is a monumental beer. I can't recall enjoying a beer more. If Westvleteren 12 is better than this then I don't want to know about it. Simple outstanding!

Looks dark brown with a big off white head. Reasonable retention.

Smells malty; spicy, raisins, cheries, dark fruits and alcohol. Caramel.

The taste is sweet, the dark fruits come out alot. The bitterness, spicyness and the alcohol balances the sweetness. A hint of smokiness perhaps. Overall a complex but balanced beer. Very good.

The beer is creamy and medium-thick with average carbonation, smooth.

Overall a great beer.

Happy hour at Brasserie Beck in DC. Poured from bottle into a snifter.

Nice amber color, two finger head that lasted quite a while.
Smells lightly of fruit, banana, bread.
Tastes amazing! Strong flavors of fruit and hop. The high alcohol content is subtle. This beer is dangerous! Sweet nectar of the gods!

Purchased 11.2 ounce bottle from the Liquor Cabinet in St. Joseph, Michigan. I had the Trappistes Rochefort #6 last year (loved that one too), so I couldn't wait for this #10.

Poured in a tall pilsner glass. Medium-hard pour resulted in a four-finger head. Beer was a dark brown color and the head lasted over five minutes.

This beer has a molasses smell. Smell wasn't overly memorable, but the taste made up for that.

The taste was absolutely amazing. Initial taste was great. Aftertaste was great. The warmer the beer got, the better it tasted. The beer was worth every penny....especially since I spent nearly $7 for the bottle.
