Quite a bit of carb when I opened the stubby bottle. Foam started coming out of the top. I was able to control the pour quite well though. Pours a beautiful deep red/brown. You can see the bubbles coming up to keep around the off white/tan head that settles down fairly quickly. Slight lacing.
Sweet dark fruits and alcohol.
You get the same dark fruits and alcohol in taste along with a bread/yeast and malts.
Lots of carbonation on the tongue but still feels thick and creamy and smooth and wonderful. The carbonation kinda died out as I came to the bottom of the glass which was a bummer. I drank it kinda slow but still.
This was the first Belgian beer I had months and months ago albeit in the 750 ml format. It blew my mind with all the carbonation and dark fruity taste. It doesn't seem as great now that I am a into “craft” beer as I originally thought, but it made me realize what beer can be and I will continue drinking this well into the future. A great all around beer.

A - Pours a dark, reddish colour with off white frothy head that diminishes sligtly but holds well
S - Bready, slightly sweet malts with hints of dark cherries, some spice a hint of banana and cloves
T - Similiar to nose, bready, yeasty, dark fruits including plums, cherries and raisins. Some caramel and spice with a slightly bitter finish
M - Medium bodied howver a little over carbonated
O - A nice beer with quality complex flavours that goes down well, however I prefer the Tripel any day.
