750ml bottle poored into a Chimay glass.
It comes out a dark merky brown color with a large fluffy tan head that reciedes to a frothy covering. Left very little lace and was obviously highly carbinated. Smell is of spice, mainly clove, sweet dark fruits, toasted maltyness and slight alcohol. The flavor is very wide ranging malts. I picked out toasted nuts, molassas and sweet raisins. There is a veyr nice dry finish almost like wine. The high carbination does thin this one out a bit. After trying the Red I'll say both were excellent and very different while also sharing some unique flavor aspects. Guess I'll have to pick up a bottle of the white next.
Edited, had one score wrong.
