Pours a cloudy dark brown with a tall tan head (several pours needed to fill the glass). Aroma is sweet and fruity, dark not citrusy, dry chocolate malt, some candy sugar and just a hint of bubblegum. Nose blooms quite well as it warms.
Taste is rich and moderately sweet, all that a dark Belgian style should be. Flavors of candy sugar, raisins, plums, caramelized malts. More flavors of white grape or pear juice, more light flavors of bubblegum, has a nice pinot noir quality (would make a good recommendation for a wine drinker). No detectable flavors of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium, very smooth, finish is clean with a small acidic bite. Stands up as well or better than just about any native Belgian ale. I've had this beer many times before without being impressed but this bottle really just struck me the right way tonight.
