Everything about this beer reminds me of raisins, dates, and figs. Even the appearance, poured with a nice head. The 10% ABV is well hidden

Deep brown with a long lasting creamy tan head leaving soapy lacing. The aroma is rich with dark fruit and I noted specifically cherries and plums. The taste adds some caramelized sugar and alcohol esters to round out the effect. There is also a nice weight and feel to the beer.

4.76/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Dark brown with lighter brown lacing.

Smell: Belgian yeast, sweet spices and fruit.

Taste: Belgian yeast throughout, carmel and raisin-like sweet malt, a little bitterness towards the end, and finally ends with slight alcohol and a strong banana-like yeast aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy thickness, low carbonation.

Overall: Full of flavor. Everything fits together perfectly. If you like Belgian beer, you should have tried this by now!
