4.5/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

An inch of bubbly, tan, sticky head caps a nice, dark brown beer with red edges. Holy smokes! What a complex nose: sweet, malty, yeasty, bubblegum, bready goodness. Delicious before I've even tasted it. The front is a buttery, spicy, yeast-o-rama. Fruity in the middle, with bubblegum, vanilla icing and dark caramel. Yeasty, bready, fruity finish. The aftertaste is slightly woody with alcohol... quite red wine-like. Absolutely delicious: sweet (but not cloying) bubblegum, malty, yeasty, vanilla icing. Wow again.

Dark brown appearance. Good head and lacing.

Aroma is of raisins, plums, fruitcake and syrup.

The taste is sweet with a complex mix of cherry cola, black grapes and treacle. There is a slight medicinal flavour here... in a good way. There's also a hint of spice in the finish.

The mouthfeel is superb. Very carbonated and palate cleansing making it easy to drink this beer.

Overall this is a very tasty and enjoyable Belgian beer that is rich and complex with a moderately high alcohol content. Very good drinking to be had here.

My mark out of a hundred would be 90.
