Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a dark amber, almost light brown, color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Thick, semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Lots of sweetness from the yeast, malt and rich Belgian candi sugar. Dark fruit notes plus some banana and spice.

T- Flavor is a lot of the same with a bunch of candi sugar providing a big sweetness. The alcohol is well-hidden but what you get in return is a nearly cloying sweetness. Notes of banana bread, spice and toffee.

M- Slightly thick and a bit sticky. Medium-low carbonation and a medium body.

O- Though I do like the fact that it's so strong yet easy to drink, it's a bit one-dimensional with the heavy handed sweetness and typical Belgian yeast character. Also I feel like the 16 oz serving is a bit much for a beer of this ABV.
