Belgian bottled brilliance.
My favorite of the St Bernardus mixed pack, so far. Still have the ABT 12 left.

Poured into st. Bernardus chalice.

A: pours a fantastic deep figgy brown with an off white, leaning to tan, head. Ample lacing with nice retention and legs.

S: Leather, figs, raisins, dark cherries and clove with spicy white pepper undercurrent. Crackery hit on uptake leads to bready finishing swallow.

m: creamy, medium~full body and finish. Explosive cherry foam if agitated at finishing swallow.

O: holy shnoikies this is good. So much interesting stuff going on.
