Appearance - Very dark, but seemingly just a very dark red like Coca-Cola. I have seen by far much darker beers but it's definitely no lager. The head was very minimal, but thin and tan. Poor lacing, but could be due to a less than decent poor.
Smell - Very, very malty and some fruity undertones when breathing back out after taking a sip.
Taste - Literally hit me in the face with the first sip. I couldn't you what exactly it is because there's a lot going on in this brew. It tastes bit like figs or cherries to me up front and finished with a pretty strong alcohol finish, hitting pretty hard on the edges of the tongue.
Mouthfeel - Has a pretty full-bodied feel to it and at 11% it starts to feel pretty prickly on the tongue.
Overall - This beer brought a look of disbelief to my face. The smell of the beer made me expect something completely different than I tasted. After you let it warm a bit it only gets better (to a point) and you can taste things that we're necessarily present before. Hope that helps and enjoy!

Poured into a tulip from a 12oz regular capped bottle. The color was dark almost completely black with little to no lacing. A fruity smell such as plums, dates, raisins comes through with an overall honey floral sweetness. Upon the first sip the dark fruit presents itself followed by a slight bitterness. Not a terribly great mouthfeel. Seem to be flat. Not sure if I got a bad of
Bottle but the lack of carbonation for a Belgian is severely disappointing.
