Pours a healthy two to three finger head, deep tan color, dense microfoam with an even surface, adequate stick to what lacing is there, nice retention. The liquid is mostly opaque, a murky brownish core which fades to a mix of muddy yellows and oranges around the rims, not much visible by way of carbonation. The nose is quite sweet, developing strong currents of milk chocolate, molasses, licorice, custard and ginger spice, verges on prune, plenty of dark fruit scents, layers itself well without ever fatiguing your nostrils. In the mouth, however, it is a little heavy and the carbonation is somewhat weak and unable to create meaningful lift off the palate. That said, the flavors are vivid and sure to please any sweet tooth, anise, cinnamon, chocolate, coconut, brown sugar, honey, some graininess along the lines of honeyed bread. Plum to prune, cherry, apricot fruit dominates. Mild char to it relieves some sugariness. Strikes me as an “nightcap” sort of beer, relaxing after dinner. Not sure I’d want to put down more than a couple of glasses. But what you do drink would please for sure.

From a bottle into a Bruery Tulip.

Quite dark. Nice tan head that builds fast then fades fast. Lots of lacing.

I smell sweet grass, sweet grains and alcohol.

This one has a lot of character. It is spicy, malty, perfectly hopped, mildly bitter, subtly sweet and pleasantly boozy. There is a perfect balance between bitter and sweet and spice and malt.

Quite dry and perfectly carbonated. There is a slight peppery aftertaste but that quickly dissipates and leaves the palate clean.

Belgian strong ales are not my favorite style. But this beer knocked my socks off. Easily one of the best beers that I have had in 2013.
