Pours the color of molasses with a bountiful head of tan froth. The invigorating aroma features clove, nutmeg, orchard fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Shark jaw lacing persists after each sip.
The taste is full and alive, with a bountiful melange of spices including the aforementioned clove, nutmeg, and possibly coriander. The malt profile offers raisin, prune, brown sugar, and bubblegum. Both spice and sweetness are there in abundance, but they're exquisitely balanced, making for an delicious, impactful brew with great staying power. A hint of alcohol finally begins to manifest in the finish as the beer warms. The lively carbonation accentuates the spices and brings a luscious, prickly mouthfeel, especially on the back end.
This is one of my all time favorite Belgian ales and was a gateway beer for me when it comes to the whole craft brewing phenomenon. To call any beer flawless is a tall order, but I must confess I have a really difficult time identifying any here.
