Incredibly delicious. Quite sweet, not hoppy at all.
The alcohol is completely hidden at out-of-the-fridge temperatures, so can easily get ripped on this one. Even as the beer warmed, I hardly noticed the alcohol.
If you don't want to finish a 750ml bottle at one sitting, don't worry -- the carbonation lasts at least 3 days if you stick a cork back in the bottle.
It took a lot of will power for me to stop after a moderate amount. It is so tasty and goes down so easily that I could have easily drunk myself to a brutal hangover.
Run, don't walk, to try this beer today.

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!).
