This one pours into a medium head. Very dark but not black. Under the light it looks a dark brown with red. Smells like chocolate, caramel, wood, cigar a little banana. It has a smoky taste, medium body, high carbonation. Wood taste, although not sure if this is matured in wood. Drink slowly.

On tap at D&T in Houston.

A: Pours a dark, slightly hazed garnet red color. A two finger beige head rises with excellent retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: A big malty aroma with the right amount of sugar and caramel sweetness and a nice fruity character. Some banana like fruity esters, and some darker fruits like cherries and plums. A phenolic spice in the finish as well. Very nice.
T: Again, very nice and enjoyable. Sugar and caramel sweetness, fruity esters of bananas. That Belgiany phenolic spice in the finish brings everything together.
M/D: A medium to full body. Crisp carbonation, but smooth at the same time. Just the right amount of warming alcohol that makes this an enjoyable sipper.

The best of the bunch that I had at D&T. So far, the one that I would purchase again. Something that I would recommend.
