A - A nice very cloudy amber, with an aggressive head that slowly dissipates, leaving a slight lacing that slowly breaks away.

S - A very nice smelling beer, a deep aroma of spice and a very slight booze scent.

T - A very deep spicy start, with booze breaking in throughout, with a yeasty crescendo, and an almost sour/bitter finish.

M - A bubbly start, that quickly disappears.

O - Solid beer, but was expecting more from this brewer.

Pours a dark rich honey amber that almost grades into russet, with ample billowing Duvel style foam. One is immediately struck by the strong yeasty esters, phenols, fruit, brown spices, and bready malt aromas, and the taste is even more complex. I get quite a lot of banana, which combines with crystal malt sweetness to yield a banana bread effect, cinnamon and nutmeg, cloves, a more fragrant noble hop perfume, some apple, a whole ton of yeast really. A yeast forward beer that veers into cloying at times, whereas Duvel stays fruity and crisp. The finish is dry, reasonably bitter, and very earthy, calls to mind ginseng or even fresh potatoes or other root vegetables. You've got several takes on spice all vying together and I can't say the whole thing is as balanced as maybe it should be, but it ain't dull. There are medicinal notes and almost a fermented honey vibe like mead. Sweetness and earthy bitterness linger for a long time and I get some overly ripe tropical fruit and grassy green hops. Fairly bubbly but less assertive carbonation than I was expecting, which is fine in terms of letting the nuances shine forth. I laud the complexity even as I wonder if the finish is overly variegated and dank. Unibroue does not produce a bad beer. This one is very good but not a world beater (cf. their dark ale and tripel offerings).

From notes

Appearance: It has a nice deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of bready Belgian yeast, peppery spices, tart apples, cloves and bananas.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some bready Belgian yeast, pepper and cloves, some banana, tart apples and some grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
