A dark brown with orange highlights, this world class Belgian style dark generally yields a small amount of light butterscotch colored head and releases a complex aroma of sweet malt, molasses, citrus, spicy esters, and the faintest whiff of aromatic alcohols. The palate is deep dark complexity that somehow manages to make the aroma seem tame. I get molasses, chocolate brownie, a bouquet of spices including lemony coriander, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon, sour curry, dried dark fruits (raisin and prune), some overripe cherry notes, and some green hop flavors that appear after a few sips. Finish is sweet and rich, you will get tipsy if not careful as the alcohol is almost undetectable (had a bottle mid-afternoon for the purpose of writing this review and should have eaten more beforehand). In my view this is among the best beers in the world and is quite easy to track down here in the West. Compare with Chimay Grande Reserve and be surprised by how well this stacks up.
