2.83/5 rDev -28%
A - Thinner looking black beer with a pale white billowy head. Head dissipates quickly but sticks around.
S - I get strong roastiness, with some dark fruit. Not getting the typical banana I get in belgians.
T - Roast hits first, maybe some chocolate. Didn't get the dark fruit that I smelled. Then it hits, sickly sweet candy sugar. Overpowering.
M - Whoa, this is one chewy thick beer. Makes sense, plenty of residual sugars coming through.
O - Not a fan of this one, the sweetness just killed this beer for me.

From tasting notes 10-10-11
Poured into a snifter
Appearance: Pitch black pour that I can tell by the way it pours that this is a very thick, viscous beer. There is a tall rich and dense brown head that settles somewhat slowly and eventually dissipates with virtually no head retention and leaves very little lace behind.
Smell: Dark fruits are prominent--especially prune and raisin--along with a dark roasty malt aroma and a fair bit of alcohol on the nose. If I inhale too vigorously, the alcohol is a bit much for me. There is also a hint of coffee.
Taste: Very sweet (almost to the point of being cloying, but not quite. After about half a bottle I adjusted to the sweetness and it was not a big deal). I taste a host of flavors including prune, raisin, more robust dark fruits, a hint coffee, roasted malt, caramelized bananas, and lots of alcohol, especially in the finish. The aftertaste is of roasted malt and dark fruits.
Mouthfeel: Rich and thick feel, and medium to full bodied. This beer is highly carbonated with a fizzy finish that helps mask the alcohol to a small extent.
Overall: I really liked this beer more and more as it warmed and as I drank more. It has a lot of great qualities, although it is fairly boozy. I love the host of dark fruits flavors and aromas, it really makes this beer a good one. And at $7.49 for a belgian style IS, at 11.8%, 750ml, the price is quite reasonable.
