4.28/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle (batch 10735), bottled on 10/18/11, poured into a Shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Quite dark and black, cola brown gets let in at the edges. The head is a dark tan, but this dies back to a think ring which eventually goes away completely. Not much in the way of lacing either. Not much to look at for a Belgian strong dark ale.

Smell: What it lacks in appearance it makes up for in aroma. Smoky, molasses, earthy hops.

Taste: Definitely one to let warm up a bit. Tastes a bit unusual when cold - a little too sweet. Once warmer, dark fruit, smoke, a bit of chocolate and coffee, a hint of toffee, and a mild bitter finish - part black coffee, part pine resin.

Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation, thick, creamy, and sticky all at the same time.

Overall / Drinkability: While the alcohol is well hidden, this does show up not to far into the glass, so the point on this beer about "giving you the courage to face the devil" is duly noted. The smoky aspect was not expected, and adds something quite different to the beer. On my first sip I did think this was a stout rather than a Belgian, but as I drank more, the Belgian character came out more and the smoky flavor was a nice touch. I can't say it's terribly drinkable, one is enough for me per evening, but overall, quite a nice beer.
