25.4 ounce bottle, corked and caged, poured into the Maudite tulip that came with said bottle.
A: Pours a cloudy medium-brown hue that changes crazy shades as it's thrust in and out of the light. A thick bone white head, 2+ fingers worth, rested on top. Minutes later, a still-present pinky's worth remains.
S: Malty-sweet, candied sugars, with yeasty breadiness and a touch of lemon zest on the nose.
T: Taste follows the nose. Lemon zest and grassy earth tones are more present on the palate than in the nose. A touch of raisin and fig rises up from underneath, and becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Bready yeastiness rolls through on the finish, with a touch of an almost-pepper-like spice on the back end completes the picture.
M: Exceptional here. Great carbonation, good creaminess, dry, sour/tart finish.
D/O: An alright offering, but not as "dark" as I like my "belgian darks" to be. I prefer a little bit more of a deeper malt presence, dark fruits, candied sugars, and a little bit less yeasty/bready/lemony notes. A fine beer, I wouldn't mind having it again sometime, but I don't love it.
