look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy medium brownish amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a very large patch of thin film and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts with a light aroma of dark fruits (plum and fig) and distinctive Belgian yeast.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of pale and dark malts with a light to moderate flavor of dark fruit (plum and fig) sweetness. That is followed by a hint of brown sugar and tart cherries. There is also a spicy Belgian yeast flavor in the finish which lingers.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: A very complex flavor profile with a very well hidden alcohol making it easy to drink and it is interesting enough to want to have over and over again.

Very good beer.. My first time trying this. I was not disappointed.. The feel was the only downfall.. Very carbonated.. Other than that I can't find any fault with this beer! Very nice Belgian taste!

My second offering from the St Bernardus mix pack.
Pours beautifully with a substantial head, and, amazing lacing.
Fours across the board in all other categories.
Already wishing I'd purchased more than one of these packs, especially, since it is now unavailable in my immediate area.
