4.25/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Dark, hazy brown with ruby highlights when held up to light. TONS of head, as soon as I cracked the bottle open head started pouring out. When I got it in the glass there was a good 3 fingers, but retention was fair at best and just a touch of lacing remained.
Smell: Dark fruits, Belgian yeast, cloves, esters, and peppery spices are all plentiful. Nice and complex, as should be expected.
Taste: Dark fruits and cloves and that Belgian yeasty taste up front. Then comes the estery alcohol and peppery spices. Super, complex flavor that is pretty hard to beat.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium body, with a nice smooth mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Very nice. This beer hides it's alcohol very well. Wish I could drink more.
Serving type: bottle
