Poured from bottle into a tulip glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deeper copper color with a one finger head of just off white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite sweet with lots of candied sugar and a good dose of caramel and toffee. Along with these smells are a lighter grassy aroma and a bit of hay. Along with these aromas is a light bit of a bready and biscuit smell mixed with some spice and banana rounding out the aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with lots of caramel and toffee sweetness with a light bit of a bready and biscuit flavor. Soon some light yeasty and bubblegum flavors along with a bit of banana come to the tongue. These flavors grow stronger in intensity as the taste moves on with the caramel and the toffee fading a bit. While the caramel and toffee fade, the beer remains rather sweeter and malty overall due to flavors of some raisin, plum, and apple coming to the tongue along with a bit of a candied sugar taste. With a bit of a grassy and funky taste and some spice of coriander and clove that comes to the tongue at the end of the taste, one is left with a rather sweet, but yet somehow crisp and smooth Belgian strong ale flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for the mix of sweet, malt, and Belgian flavors of the brew, creating a very nice easy drinking Belgian strong ale.
Overall a rather sweet, but still easy drinking Belgian strong ale. A rather easy drinking brew overall.

3.93/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Bottle is labeled as Batch #7 with a 8.9% ABV.
Dark honey body with a thick, foamy, sticky head. Sweet grains, apricots, and a little boozy smell. Esters and sweet syrup with a touch of peppery spice and some alcohol warmth; nice blend of hop bitterness mixing it up with the boozy tones. Medium-heavy body; semi-sweet finish.
This beer meets all the criteria for a Belgian strong ale: big malt flavors, spicy, boozy, and they all blend together and play well together. Bold and memorable.
