A: Dark orange-red with a bright white, fluffy thick head. Lots of lacing.

S: Belgian yeast, caramel, toffee. Rich and heavenly.

T: Lots of peppery Belgian yeast taste up front as well as caramel/toffee and dark fruits throughout. Very, very sweet but the complexity keeps it in check.

M: The ABV is hidden masterfully and the beer has a great creamy texture. It's full bodied and perhaps a bit under carbed.

O: A really great beer, as I would expect a BSDA from Unibroue to be. Given the choice I think I'd always rather have a La Terrible or Trois Pistoles, but this beer is still world class in my book.

Best before 12/14/2012 - poured from a 750mL caged-and-corked bottle into my Oerbier tulip.

Deep Portland orange liquid with three fingers of dense off-white mousse up top. Thick, lasting suds try to climb over the sides - superior retention.

Sweet, malty, floral, ester-laden nose - gentle yet complex aromatics reveal a careful balance between the distinctive phenolic yeast strain and the dark fruit notes from the alcohols.

Caramel, dates, figs, toffee, leather, and deep toasty malt on the palate. A mild bitterness and earthy/spicy flavors emerge next revealing the hops. Medium to medium-dry finish. Malty complexity continues on into the aftertaste.

Medium-full bodied, well carbonated, and faintly sticky mouth-feel; alcohol is well hidden, though the ale is warming.

A pleasing Abbey-ale inspired brew - a touch sweet maybe, but well crafted and very drinkable.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Off-white head with moderate retention. Oily, soapy, sticky lacing. Dark copper body with haze. Aroma includes deep caramel malt notes, almost butterscotch and brown sugar, slight alcohol. Taste includes caramel, toffee, some Werthers Original (tm) and some dark fruits, maybe dates. Actually no alcohol on tasting. Really drinkable for a higher ABV and certainly delicious.
