12 oz bottle poured into a Belgian ale glass. ~45 degrees F or so, 10 minutes out of the fridge. Enjoyed over spaghetti with sweet sausage, while catching up on Walking Dead. Picked up for 9.99 for a 12 oz.- 4 pack.
Looks- Settles into an attractive chestnut burgundy with medium carbonation and good head formation, the head is a khaki tan. The last of the bottle pours with what looks to be a small amount of sedimentation. Head dies down at a medium pace, and drinking brings a nice lacing that stays for about 30 seconds.
Nose- Sweet molasses, clove, fresh bread, so much more behind it. An excellent nose, it certainly picks up where words leave off. I definitely recommend serving this in a glass that allows you to enjoy this delectable nose.
Taste and mouthfeel- Sweet fruit: plums, cherries, pears, and more. Bright, sugary molasses, medium bodied, boozy on exhalation. Sweet fruity flavor stands alongside a warming bready flavor. No bitterness to speak of. Just enough carbonation, dangerously drinkable at 8.5% ABV.
Overall- World-class, without a shadow of a doubt. Deliciously fruity without nearing pungency. A score for anyone who loves a good Belgian Ale. Just 30 minutes and it was gone, but I'm certain to be back!

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
