Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass.
Dark tea in color with ruby highlights. Billowy bone-white head of foam.
Aroma-Dark malts, subtle spices
Taste-Dark fruits, plum, dark malts, Belgian spiciness. Very smooth for the strength. Big character and depth of flavors. A great food beer for the table. Excellent!

2013 vintage 750 ml bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark, completely opaque, mahogany color, with two full fingers of white head that disappeared into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Tons of toasted malt, followed by candied sugar, Belgian yeast, honey, dried stone fruit, such as fig, raisins and dates.

Taste: Similar to the aroma. Toasted malt up front, immediately followed by flavors of candied sugar, Belgian yeast, tons of honey and dried stone fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some really good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 9.0%, I’m surprised at how little alcohol there is on the palate; there’s practically none!

Overall: Wow, what a beer!! Great flavors of malt, sweet and fruit! Delicious!
