A - Dark hazy brown. Nice white head.

S - Stone fruits. Grapes. Light grains.

T - Tart grapes. Apples. Dark malt.

M - Sweet. Mild carbonation.

O - Classic Belgian. Has its fruity yeast esters and sold malt backbone. Good beer, but I swear I'm not super crazy about. Would drink again.

Pours a rich dark brown into a Westmalle goblet. 2 fingered head but with a very gentle pour. Not much retention and little lacing. Smells like raisins or dates with some dark chocolate. Has a good roasted malt flavor. A little nutty. Nice carbonation. More carbonation than I expected after the pour. Very smooth and drinkable. Not my favorite of this style but very good.
