A: Pours a deep chestnut color with garnet highlights. A foamy beige head wells up in the glass as soon as you start to pour. Some spotty tracks of lace down the glass.
S: Spiced apples, hearty bread, chalky Belgian yeast notes, spice cake, clove and some dates.
T: Rich dark malt and dark fruit notes mingle with baking spice, Belgian yeast, cloves, some dark bread, and just a touch of booze on a drying finish. Mouthfeel is a touch light, but still smooth and complements the flavors well. To me, this doesn't come close to being as complex as a Westy 12 or Rochefort. Still, it's a great beer that deserves its accolades.
