Poured into a goblet. Pours dark toffee brown with a two finger length off-white head. There are lots of visible bubbles in this beer, which is expected for a bottle conditioned beer. The beer has the classic Belgian dark ale aroma with those fruity esters that give off smells of apple and pear. I get some sweetness from the malt and those cloves. I don't pick up much booziness in the smell. The taste closely follows the nose. The dark malts, spices, and Belgian yeast deliver the desired flavors here. I get those fruits and the bready and malty sweetness. It is not too cloying in the mouth. The body is medium with lively carbonation. The finish is clean and this is easy to drink for such a big beer. This is a very good beer. It is a solid representation of the style.

750mL bottle poured into a Maudite tulip

The body slides into the glass a burnt orange amber with good clarity. The light tan cap fizzes up to fill the glass and never fully disappears, settling to a thin layer of bubbles atop the surface of the liquid.

The nose is ripe with fruity esters. Grapes and apple skins with burnt caramel and clove. The Belgian yeast strain is front and center. Spicy and phenolic.

On the palate, burnt caramel/toffee lend some sweet overtones. Spicy phenols are bold and steal the show. The phenols give off a band-aid/medicinal notes. Some soft cocoa notes with brown sugar and plums round out the profile.

Medium body, prickly carbonation. The finish is semi-dry with a good amount of spice and a sugary sweetness.

A damn fine BSDA. Easy drinking with layers of flavor and complexity. Flavors keep coming in waves and retreat slowly, leaving a long lingering bready, sugary, spicy flavor. Delicious.
