4.4/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Nice two finger head of light brownish red foam. Thick lace with moderate clinging power. Color is a 22 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is sweet, with fragrances of raisins, currents, plums, brown sugar, toffee, roasted coffee, and molasses. Taste is quite sweet, with flavors of brown sugar, clove, raisins, plum, apricot, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, but lacking a good deal of carbonation prickly sensation. Great beer overall, nice warming feeling from the goodly amount of alcohol. A little pricey, but worth another sample down the road.

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!).
