I had this on tap last night at the Firkin in Libertyville after I saw my co-worker drinking one. It looked so good that I had to try it.
This is the highest rating I have given to a beer yet. I don't believe in giving a beer all 5's but it was very tempting with this one. The best way to describe this beer is "WOW". I am a big fan of Belgian Ales, Chimay, Delirium etc, but I think this is the best of them all. I have to go back and have another.
It was served to me in a ST. Bernardus chalice. The pour was very dark with a beautiful one or two finger head. This beer is very complex; fruit, hops, alchohol all are present. But most of all it is smooth and very drinkable. It was gone before I knew it.
I will definately pick up a couple of the 750ml bottles to try at home. And as I said, I have to go back to the bar to enjoy this again. Maybe I should take my time drinking the next one.
Serving type: on-tap
