Pours very cloudy. Aroma is nice but the taste is excellent. Lives up to its reputation

Wow. This is a very complex beer. I sampled it on tap at the Craft Beer Market in Calgary. It has a nice yeasty nose, caramel malt, and a fair amount of sweetness. This was my dessert beer and it suited the purpose nicely.

pours a clear a dark brown with a small amount of white lacy froth.
Aromas of malts fresh baked bread and spicy nuts.
Flavors of sweetness, some fruit and cake.
Mouth feel is very nice. Small amount of bitterness. Very refreshing.
A great Belgium beer.
