Black with off white head. Sweeten bread, beefy yeast, wet malt. Tad lighter Belgian with a velvety mouth feel.

Appearance- Pours deep brown mahogony, dark amber. Three finger thick slight off-white head, foamy and bubbly, high carbonation. Slight lacing on sides of glass.
Aroma- Slightly weak on aroma, sweet and sugary malts, some darker sweet fruits like plum or raisin. Yeasty, earthy, belgian phenols. Everything fairly subdued though.
Taste- Sweet, fruity malts, some brighter fruits like orange paired with some darker bitter fruits. Slight funkiness, very dry and astringent throughout, almost oaky and woody.
Feel- High carbonation, medium mouthfeel slightly sticky but smooth.
Overall- There is a nice balance of sweetness with dry bitterness, malts are sugary sweet, fruity, and play nicely off a bitterness throughout and oaky dry finish. Wonderful belgian phenols throughout, strong yeasty, bready, and earthy flavors.

A very pleasant creamy dark beer. Again, watch the ABV which is high as many of this style can be.
