Served from an 11.2 oz bottle, in a Duvel tulip. Upon pouring, a stiff rocky tan head formed, which was decorated with nutmeg colored particles. When the head receded, an intricate lacing pattern was left behind. The dark ruddy-brown beer was very cloudy and riddled with particulates. The sharp nose was malty and quite fruity, with notes of cherry, raisin, and coconut, with a wisp of alcohol sneaking through. The full-bodied and slighty fluffy beer was a delight for the taste buds. The fantastic slightly tart malt backbone faintly resembled a Flemish brown and was accompanied by notes of cherry, cinnamon, and banana, with a fairly dry finish. The collection, strength, and balance of flavors was perfection. No wonder why the fellow on the bottle is so happy!

Had this from a 22oz. bottle at Madame Janette's in Aruba.
WOW! what a find. Succulent dark and sticky fruits and yeasty spice explode from the goblet. It is a symphony of luscious malty sweets and warming alcohol goodness. Very promising.
One sip and I'm addicted to this beer for life! There are layers of fruits to pull apart; plum, green melon, figs, banana, dark cherries, and more. It's delightfully yeasty, with raw dough and all the accompanying spice. There's a nibble of artfully added hops toward the end. It's sweet and fruity while maintaining it's dignity.
The mouthfeel is medium big, with a very creamy, full texture. It's ever so gently carbonated and really feels like velvet in my mouth. I lick my goblet clean when I am finished, it's that good!
