I’ve been drinking this one for so long I had just assumed I posted a review up at some point. So this is going to be short and to the point, but really what more do you need to know other than: it’s fantastic. Delicious. Drink it. For the price, the accessibility, and above all the quality this can’t be beat.
Pours a thick, dark ruby-burgundy with light foam. Wonderful bouquet with stone fruits dominating. The flavor shares an equal profile, with some plum and fig as well as a date-like sweetness standing out. What I find remarkable is how smooth (and smoothly sweet) this is. I mean, almost velvety. While not unusual I forget. (Belgian Strong Ale is not as clearly defined a category in my mind as say a dubble or triple and the wide variation is part of the reason.) This one won over some new converts recently and I can’t wait to share some more soon.

The main thing that ticks me off about this beer is if it gets shaken in the very slightest way in a bottle it'll foam like a volcano when you open it...wasting most of the beer. It foams like crazy too! A slight shaking in any manner will make it seem like you opened a bottle of beer you JUST vigorously shaked like crazy! And it's not cheap so seeing it fuzz like crazy after a simple car ride and losing half a bottle is annoying!
