Poured from a 750 into my St. Bernardus Goblet. The color is a dark rust brown with a red-brown head that is quite large. It recedes with time, although there is still some sticking around even after about 30 minutes. Lacing left behind.
The smell is quite fruity. There are many esters of dark fruit: raisins, dates and the like, along with cherries. Also lots of malt and a bit of alcohol.
The taste is very complex and delicious. Quite fruity up front, followed by malt and a lovely sweetness, followed by some caramelization and a dry, slight hop finish.
The mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Carbonation definitely contributes rather than outdoes the creamy texture. Finishes dry.
A great beer. Definitely one to age if you have the space, as it is good to drink now and will only improve with time.

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
