Enjoyed from a growler in a snifter glass. This awesome Belgian pours a rich reddish brown with a nice tan head that dissipates to a thin beaded bubbled thick ring and thin layer of pooling foam with light lacing. Nose of sweet Belgian malts, brown sugars, coriander, light mace and allspice, and strong booze. Flavors outperform the nose with sweet malts to the front and sides, brown sugars and candy sugars make merry with light coriander and allspice and mace notes. Smooth slick mouth feel finishes evr so slightly dry with a sweet, lightly spice aftertaste. A fantastic Belgian made in America with loving care. Fantastic!

Cheers!

12 oz bottle poured into a Nonic pint. Deep brown/coffee-like color. 1.5 finger head that melted quickly with minimal lacing. Nice aroma hitting on a touch of orange - I didn't pick up on the other spices listed on the label. Taste: another reviewer mentioned mustiness which is spot on but unfortunately it was a negative for me. Overall this one grew on me by the time I finished but the first 8 oz were just OK-- perhaps the 10% ABV was talking down the stretch.

This one is too boozy fresh for me, would like to try it with a few years on it. Not bad, but the booze overpowers the flavors.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of fruits, spices. Taste is dark fruits, malts, spices, some alcohol, a bit sweet at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: hazy brown with some red in the body; sediment floating around as well; effervescent; medium sized frothy head, long lasting with good lacing.

Smell: sweet malts; candi sugar; coriander and cardamom notes apparent; slight orange peel aroma; smells fantastic

Taste: sweet malts with candi sugar right up front; citrus hits quickly, too; mace and cardamom stands out pretty well also, almost like German speculatius cookie; finishes smooth with a little bit of dryness on the end; very well balanced and delicious with a big kick

Mouthfeel: creamy and smooth

Remarks: very nicely done; I love this one

Pours hazy brown with a large beige head, with good retention and lacing. The aroma has caramel, bananas, coriander, cardamom, and dark fruit.

Has a sweet taste with some bitterness for balance, and a lot of spices. There is caramel, bananas, cardamom, coriander, dark fruit, pears, and apples. There are more spices in this beer than I can pick out, in addition to the two I mentioned.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and a caramel and spice aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden for a 10.0 % abv beer. I'm glad I had a chance to try this, and would gladly buy it again.
