look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Two fingers of beige bubbly head over deep reddish brown body.

S: Aromas are loaded: the malt profile is sweet, fruity, and toasty biscuit. Alcohol solvency is present as well. Deeper pulls are overripe stone fruits, hints of anise. Some vanilla pulling through.

T: Flavors are bitter, fruity, subtle toasted malt flavor. Bitter and drying finish. A little reminiscent of a well-balanced brown ale, only a touch sweeter. Swirled and poured last few sips, and emboldened flavors reveal more herbs. There's the faintest hint of carob. Warmth brings out the comforting Belgian yeast notes, emphasis on bitter clove. Can't taste that heat that I smell.

M: Medium and chewy. Dry and bitter. Evenly carbonated.

D: Trappists do it better.
