look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 500mL bottle into my Val-Dieu goblet.

Appearance: ruddy, tawny hue with a good effervescence and a moderate haze. Head poured a pretty thin layer of ivory foam, but despite that it's still a good looking beer.

Smell: rich and sweet raisin, date and tobacco aroma. There's a bit of dustiness and a whiff of strong alcohol (which I like) and a dash of biscuit (of which I'm not so fond). Mostly a very good aroma, though.

Taste: toasty and a little biscuity, like a Belgian-inspired altbier. There are good dark-fruit flavors, though, with more of that raisin and date character. Not bad at all.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a good creaminess that I rather like.

Overall: it's hard for me to *love* this beer, what with its biscuity qualities, but otherwise it has a lot going for it. The more I drink, the less the biscuit bothers me; I think as it warms the fruitiness comes out better; it's pretty good stuff. I could see being in the mood for this again.

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a dark reddish amber with a half finger khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dark stone fruit, moderately estery, a touch of alcohol. Flavor starts with sweet dark fruit, caramel malt, clove then develops an herbal bitterness with residual dark fruits and moderate boozy element. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. The initial impression is very sweet, but the developing bitter herbal element tends to cover and complement the sweetness. A somewhat idiosyncratic take on a Belgian strong dark, but I rather enjoyed it. The finishing booziness is a bit of a negative, but there are plenty of strong flavors here to support it.
