4.5/5 rDev -2.6%

Pours a very viscous frothy head. Dark amber caramel color.
Very strong aroma. Sweet malty aroma. Rasins, figs, plumbs are nicely complimented by lemon zest and Belgian fruity yeast aroma.
Toffee caramel malts good dark fruit flavor. Blast of various spices from cinnamon to nutmeg maybe even a hint of clove. Sweet candy sugar and a light citrus note here and there.
Chewy but nice and light with the good carbonation. Little bit of an alcohol burn. Very complex delicious beer. I can understand the hype.
