4.7/5 rDev +11.1%
12 oz bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a dark brown with purplish red undertones. A medium tan head appears which subsides after a couple of minutes to a thin veil, sparse lacing.
Smell is pungent dark fruits up front - plums, cherries and raisins, mainly. The alcohol is also apparent, with some chocolate and a bit of an herbal quality.
Taste is exactly what you expect from the aroma. Lots of sweet, dark fruits up front, with a touch of chocolate and alcohol spiciness. Under that initial blast, you can taste some hops, which help to balance the sweetness of the beer and it does a good job. Reminded of dark chocolate on top of tart, dark cherries. This ends up being dry on the finish, despite the sweet smell and initial flavors. Very easy drinking for a strong dark. Mouthfeel is smooth and bubbly.
Overall, an excellent strong dark Belgian ale. Way too easy going down at 9%.
