750ml into a duvel tulip

pours an amazing textbook brown with a monster 4 finger head. looks like a root beer

dark fruit nose with raisins and a toasted maltiness. not too much alcohol in there

fruity yeast notes with spices and brown sugar. blends in together well

a very well put together BSDA. nothing too flashy but the simpleness makes it great.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Chestnut brown colour, one finger of white/tan head, light lace but quite minimal. Smell is full of dark fruit, fig, dates and raisin, spicy notes as well, nutmeg?, dark breads and brown sugar as well. Taste is all fruit at first, raisins and figs, subtle spice bill, overripe plums, brown sugar with traces of yeast in the background, very complex stuff. Medium carbonation, full body, solid weight, good feel overall. Incredible stuff and near perfection, this is one I will keep coming back to as often as possible, outstanding.
