Aged with Nebbiolo grapes. Has a very mild tart tone to it. Either that or my gauge has been so blown out of proportion that I can't tell what is sour and what isn't anymore, as it is described as tart by the proprietors.

Spiced tones on it with fig tones do seem to be there, as noted. Chocolate and raspberry are quite evident as well since they were added during the process. The flavor profile is thick. Honestly, I think this one could be aged down quite a bit to bring some character out. However, that ain't gonna happen. These guys can't make it fast enough, it seems. And as this is my first beer from them, I can see why.

Edit, in addition: got a sample of this for a non-beer-lover and she liked it better than the Belgian beer samples I got for her at Sharp Edge.
