Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into Chimay Chalice.
A - chocolatey brown with copper edges. A one finger head that did not last long. Not much lacing. Some unsettled yeast in the bottom of the glass.
S - sweet smelling figs, raisins, and the scent of pecan pie come to mind. Very nice!
T - tasty but somewhat one dimensional or "well balanced" which makes it hard to pinpoint specific flavors. Not as sweet or fruity as the aroma would lead you to believe. Hops play a minor role here while malts and yeast flavors share top billing. Finishes warm.
M - silky smooth and slick with a decent amount of carbonation.
O - ABV is masked nicely so this brew goes down smoother than you might expect. Very enojoyable, but I felt it was missing something....can't put my finger on it though. Still a very good example of the style.
