4.85/5 rDev +12.8%
Appearance: Deep amber with an active, cream coloured head. Looks very rich.
Smell: Some bready notes over an undercurrent of slightly sweet autumn fruits – apples, raisins, and the like.
Taste: A sweetish wave of fruit and malt comes up front, followed by more bready notes with Belgian yeasts – a bit of sourness. The beer finishes out sweet, with more dark fruit notes, some caramelly elements, and a mild alcohol flavour that provides a nice warming and emphasizes some peppery, licorice-y flavours in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Exceptionally smooth, moderately heavy on the palate, very good.
Overall: A pretty exceptional beer – complex, interesting, well balanced and delicious. It goes very well alongside a nice chunk of Chimay à la Bière.
