750ml brown bottle, corked and caged with a vintage date on the cork.
LOOK: Deep garnet, very clear. Good lacing all around.
SMELL: Buckwheat honey, booze soaked raisins, tart apple, toasted bready, treacle, peppery
TASTE: Super smooth, creamy, full-ish body, date sugar, estery, warming, spicy, faintly medicinal, yeast, mineral, leafy hops, dried grass, toasted fruit cake, semi-dry finish
Still holds on to greatness as it is a few steps ahead of the middle of the pack, with that said there are other Belgian beers that easily surpass this but not so much that I would not keep on coming back.
Serving type: bottle
