Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet.

A - Straw to light golden color. Hazy when poured but quickly changes to exceptionally clear. Streams of tiny bubbles rising. Thick white head that lasts. Good Belgian lace.

S - Strong pilsner malt grain mixes with black pepper. Some other spices in the background along with a hint of bubblegum. The finish has assertive hot alcohol. Moderately complex.

T - The overwhelming flavor is cracked black pepper. Grainy malt is underneath. Medium hops bitterness with a grassy flavor.

M - Medium body. Hops bitterness adds to the alcohol burn. Creamy carbonation. Dry finish but the grain note lingers.

O - For me this is a good beer, verging on great. The over-emphasis on black pepper and alcohol heat distract me from the other good qualities. All the aromas and flavors come from the traditional Belgian palette, I just think they could be balanced better.
