Pored from a 750 dl bottle.
Amazing cloudy extremely dark amber color. Even in front of the light I can't see through the other side.NICE! Love love this. I haven't had one in so long and thinking that my latest IPA craze would take over. Not at all. The head fall pretty quickly with no lacing what so ever on the Chimay goblet. Not oil at all even tough it may seem like it.
Bread yeasty and spices molasses and Malt up front. Predominant sweetness that is not overwhelming. Amazing hop balance in the back keeps all of this goodness in check. Belgium perfection.
Medium carbonation that hold up until the end feel great on the tongue.
decade if not centuries of craftsmanship make this %9 ABV so drinkable with no trace of alcohol burn.
Nothing else to say. there is a reason why this perfect Belgium style beer sells so well, It's mighty good.
