3.58/5 rDev -19.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Served in a flute glass.
Appearance: Cloudy brown and when places against the right lighting heavy bubbles on the body, thick orange-white head that is at least a finger's length.
Smell: lightly yeasty, and has a sweet scent (good) but awfully light.
Taste: light yeast and a notch sour. The alcohol taste mixed with dark fruits gives this almost a wine feel to it.
Mouth: Very smooth, and light bread after-taste with medium carbonation.
Overall: very good beer but you and I both have had better especially factoring in price. I would drink again, no doubt about that but slightly skeptical about another purchase. Try it yourself and you give it a shot.

4.5/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a glass into a Belgian Ale stemmed glass.
A: Dark, cloudy brown with tinges of deep red and orange. Thick head, some sediment (in bottle) can sneak out in an aggressive pour.
S: Big roasted malt body with strong notes of caramel, honey, molasses and peat. Some spicy and hoppy finish.
T: Primarily dark roasted malt body with spice and sweet on top. Big caramel notes and hints of clove and candy. Some cherry nose and a somewhat hoppy finish. Fairly boozy but very balanced considering its ABV and OG.
M: Smooth and silky, somewhat carbonated, not overly sweet or bitter. No unfortunate aftertastes. Very balanced and enjoyable to drink.
O: Another fine Belgian. Not quite as good as the Trappistes beers, specifically the Rochefort 10, but nonetheless an excellent beer. I enjoyed the malty body and tinges of cherry candy in the finish. Nice color, a bit more sediment than I was expecting (got a little in my glass, oops!).
