Bottle to a goblet.
A: Pours a deep dark brown to black which shines a ruby red. Small head that dissipates quickly to a light ring. The beautiful red in the light really makes this one shine. Almost wine-like.
S: Caramel sweetness and a feint nudge of spice. Not potent at all, quite hard to smell.
T: A short start of caramel leading into a heavy load of dark fruit. Only a small bit of spice present on the tip. This is a fruity mixture, as typical with the style. No alcohol present what so ever, fantastic job on that.
M: A very smooth, rolly feel with little carbonation.
D: The emphasis on dark fruit here would keep me away from more than one or two, suitable as this is to be sipped at its whopping 11% ABV.
Not best in style, but a suitable brew for dark fruit Belgian lovers.
