4/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This Belgian pours red-brown--kind of raisin color with an off-white head that quickly diminishes to a thin skim. The aroma is quite malty, sweet raisin, caramel, and fig with fruity esters. The flavor is intensely malty, mainly raisin. The beer finishes dry and warm malts linger on the palate. The carbonation is medium-high and body medium-full. Overall a well-made flavorful beer, best after warming considerably, otherwise it is a bit one-dimensional a bit lacking.

Serving type: bottle

3.73/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear red/brown color with a bubbly tan head. No lacing left behind. The overall appearance of this beer is above average.

Smell: Caramel malt and dark fruit sweetness galore. No hops, though I wasn't expecting them, at least on the nose. Not a huge depth of flavor, but very pleasant, and also quite sweet. Quite nice.

Taste/feel: Moderate carbonation with a surprisingly full body are the highlight of this beer. A lot of sweetness, but remains drinkable as hell through it all. Zero off-flavors. Great for the style/those who enjoy malty/sugary sorts of beers. Substantial dark fruit and bready flavors. Not a huge flavor depth, but this doesn't need it. Great example of the style.
