cloudy chesnut red with an awesomely creamy and dense layer of tan foam that ain't going anywhere. sticky patches of lace coat the goblet. sweet caramel and fruitcake aroma with a hint of medicinal phenol character. lively carbonation, slightly fizzy, yet still very smooth and rich. bursting with dark fruit, cherry-like flavors. slick and sweet with ample caramel character that is more pleasant than it sounds. goes sort of medicinal in the middle with a phenolic character that is there for balnce, yet seems just slightly off-kilter. finishes with a peppery noble hop bite that quite satisfying. alcohol stays mostly hidden, and this is easy drinkin' for such a big, bold, and flavorful ale. one of the best american-brewed belgian style ales that i've ever had, made even more attractive at its price relative to other beers of this style and character. nice job.
