4.5/5 rDev +0.7%
Dark brown colour and kicks off with a big head. This recedes fast leaving some good lacing.
The smell is of dark fruit and brown sugar.
This beer has many elements to the taste. I detect raisins, cola, booze, brown sugar, treacle, alcohol warmth and a syrupy warmth. A complex beer indeed!
There is a phenolic, medicinal flavour in there and a fair level of bitterness hiding beneath the sweet flavours.
The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and this Belgian strong ale really tingles on the tongue.
Overall, a big tasty Belgian beer. Right up there with Rochefort 10 and Chimay in this category.
