11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Unibroue tulip.

From the pour a massive, thick and frothy head forms. It's a foamy oatmeal color and leaves sheets of lace in its wake as it recedes. The body is a dark amber that's almost entirely opaque. 4.5

Sweet pungent dates, heavy sweet malt. Raisins. Syrupy candy aromas. Molasses. 4.25

There are similarities between this brew and Malta Goya. Robust molasses, sweet caramel malt, and some bread and toast flavors. Malt expresses itself in a number of forms with this beer. Syrupy sweetness, very candy-like, lingers on the finish, along with a yeasty pepperiness. 4.25

I appreciate how smooth this beer is. It's no small feat to make a beer like this seem almost devoid of alcohol heat, but Westmalle did it. In lieu of that you get a colorful carbonation feel throughout before a long, dry finish. The medium body is somewhat disguised by the bubbly feel. A bit of spice makes an appearance close to the finish. 4.25

It's delicious. I feel I should have postponed this beer a few days and cracked it on Thanksgiving with some turkey, as it would have paired well. I'll probably have to cop another. Boo hoo.
