Pours from the little bottle a ruddy dark brown into my chalice. Head retention good, not much in the way of lace.
Smell is great, slightly boozy candied cherries, among other fruity aromas. That Unibroue yeast sure seems to want to throw out all kinds of esters at you - characteristically strong Unibroue nose.
T - A no-brainer. Nearly a perfect Belgian Strong Dark, well-integrated, nothing in particular jumps out at me other than that slightly sweet cherry flavor. I note that others have claimed a roasty taste; I'm a little disappointed to find that I don't really get that, but it's still a very tight beer. Dries out nicely to a couple fruity burps, not much of an aftertaste at all. Alcohol very concealed, moreso than the Chimay Blue, which (to me) likes to show off the alcohol a little
Feel is that nice airy, gentle typical Belgian feel, causing you to completely forget you're drinking a strong beer. Geez, this barely tastes like an alcoholic beverage to me.
Drinkability is very good - most of the heavy hitters in this style are quite drinkable for their strength, and this is no exception. This passed the test with flying colors; I'll pick up the 750 next.
