This came in a 750ml bottle corked and caged. This poured out a mahogany color body with about a fourth inch off white head. No lacing was left as this was consumed. Aroma is full of a malty sweetness with a strong dark fruit presence. Taste is sweet and spicy with a strong fruitiness. There are traces of the alcohol present as well and a spicy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is almost full with a creamy texture. Drinkability is good as well, I would definitely have this again. Give this one try if you come across it.

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.
