750ml corked bottle into a Chimay goblet glass...no age info.
A - Great big off white head with a dark amber color to the liquid. Darker than expected.
S - Very fruity, almost wine like tones with little of the Belgian banana smells I expected.
T - Again fruity and wine like. Didn't dig it on the first sip, but came to like it after a few. Its like candied alcohol chilled on fruit. Quite nice actually.
M - Creamy head is present through most sips, higher carbonation then most for a slightly thing feel. The candied flavors makes this very slightly syrupy, but not in a bad way.
D - High drinkablity. This is an ideal beer for a wine lover, but also has plenty to offer to the recovering hophead. Very diff then most beers I've tried - will def be serving this at a future dinner party.

My dad passed away a couple of years ago. He was a very enthusiastic fellow about many things, one of which was fruitcake (yeah, I know). In the fruitcake family, at least the way he made it, was pecan whiskey cake. Even people who hate fruitcake loved his pecan whiskey cake. This beer reminds me of that cake - dark, dried fruity, accompanied by the pleasant presence of alcohol, etc.. Whenever I drink this beer, I think of my dad and his enthusiasm for making unusual desserts.

Deep brown with amber highlights and a slightly frothy ivory head.
Aroma is figgy, with notes of dates. Fairly sweet and bready, with candi sugar.
Fairly raisiny flavor, with light alcohol and a hint of burnt sugar, with a finish of menthol and light dryness. Slight sharp cherry notes are evident. Yeast character is somewhat spicy.
Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol heat.
Very raisin dominant flavor, with light sweetness and more bready notes. The finish is fairly dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Honestly, I expected more complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
