4.33/5 rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a cloudy rust color with a prodigious head that descends very quickly but leaves behind a lot of lacing
Smell: The date and burnt caramel and nut elements burst out along with vague fruity smells of pears and apricots
Taste: Starts out with a sweet caramel and bubble gum character that is joined by rum-soaked coffee cake, clove and woody dry flavors by mid-palate; after the swallow, there are layers of sweet and dry flavors along with a touch of molasses on the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a high degree of carbonation; very Belgian in its mouthfeel
Drinkability: A very enjoyable beer from Allagash which shows their proficiency with the Belgian style
Serving type: bottle

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
Serving type: on-tap
