The appearance is better than the label...once poured into my glass the dark flavorful color entices the senses. The smell was more of an odor unfortuantely almost medicinal,wont be coughing tonight. Thankfully the taste is better than the smell,a nice vibrant tingling,as I tippled. Should have a ninja on the label....thought this beer was kinda dead..but then "pow"..nice malty,breads..and fruits with a good balance of tangy hops and alcohol. Almost makes me want to become a monk and move to Belgium. To me this is a seasonal taste,however,better in front of a fire, and snow outside. Its 104 degrees outside right now so maybe i should have waited and reviewed this @ winter.

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!).
