4.4/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a .33 liter bottle into a chalice. It provided about two inches of fluffy sea foam type head that eventually went down to about 1/2 finger of head. Some mild lacing occurred. A nice red tint. Smells like a loaf of warm bread, some mild spiciness and some fruit characteristics. Nice complex flavor. Can taste the yeasts, some roasted malts, and mild hops with fruit overtones. Can't put my finger on the exact fruit but goes nocely with the bread. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not syrupy like some dubbel, and not overly alcohol feeling. Drinkability is fine and dandy, could enjoy a few at a sitting, and since they are readily available at a fairly decent price, don't mind if I do.
