Poured into a Chimay goblet
A: Hazy, ice tea amber. A tan, one finger head that dissipates within a minute. Big bubbles. Significant lacing.
S: Dark fruits, cherries, malts, Belgian yeast
T: Malty goodness balanced with mild cherry notes. Yeast, caramel, bourbon. Full bodied. A sweet finish with a light chocolate backbeat. Better as it warms. Evens out the taste.
M: Medium, creamy, chewy. Great carbonation; bubbles did a Pop Rocks routine as they sat on my tongue.
O: Smooth, rich. An after dinner sipper with a slice of cheddar. Didn't really feel the 9% alcohol. Worth all the hype.
Serving type: bottle
