Decanted into a Sam Adams glass, next time I'll get a proper glass. Screw top bottle dataed Best Before 01-24-14.
Appearance a dark, slightly ruddy, murky, red/brown. I left plenty of yeast in the bottle but there is still quite a bit of cloudiness. Put up a good couple finger tan head with lots of body and some lace. Reduced to a thin froth on the top.
Smells of yeast, spices and olives. Bread smell is strong when the heads up but gets more subtle as it dissipates. Then note is primarily green olives and spices.
Taste has more spice to it. Cinnamon and cloves, maybe some coriander. I keep coming back to green olives... Slightly sweet. No hop bitterness to speak of. A very flavorful beer. Not as sweet or as much dark fruit as some other Belgian strongs, but very good. Alcohol is nicely subdued.
Mouthfeel a low-medium body. Mostly hits the front and sides of the tongue. Nicely effervescent. Refreshing and drinkable.
Overall a good Belgian Strong ale, not too sweet with quite a bit of spice. It is very tasty, but this much spice reminds me to enjoy in small doses. 1 or 2 bottles would be my limit.
I would get it again.
