3.45/5  rDev -2%

A: dark ruby-brown colour, small head that lingers.

S: not much there, some fruits, hint of coffee

T: hints of cherries and oranges, and chocolate, overall fairly sweet but with an acidic and bitter touch

M: thinner than most Belgian winter beers, not dry at all, alcohol not noticeable

O: I quite like this one, although I don't really know why. Not that far away from soda. Normally i thin winter beer are a bit heavy and either overly sweet or burned

330ml bottle, poured into Leffe Chalice. Very dark auburn colour, hazy, decent thick, tanned head, good lacing retention. Aroma was yeast, oak and molasses. Tasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, yeast and cranberry. Smooth texture, slightly thick body, not overly carbonated. Fairly similar to the Dubbel, but less sticky. Decent enough.
