Poured from a bomber into a snifter.
Quite black with an appealing red hue when held up into the light. It almost like a very, very dark wine.
+ Bonus points for the fantastic label and packaging in general.
Lots of dark fruit, dates, and raisins. Cherries and plums, possibly? Sweet molasses that is just right, and makes you excited to take the first sip.
Incredible! Licorice. Again, lots of dark fruit and molasses. The alcohol is well hidden and serves to add some well-desired "bite."
Just the right amount of carbonation, almost a bit more than expected. Extremely pleasant mouthfeel. The flavors stick around for a nice amount of time without being sirupy or sticky.
If all Belgian Strong Dark Ales are comparable to this one, I really have to look further into this style. This is a beer that is quite close to being perfect. Definitely one of my new favorites.
