The beer pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is great! The malt bill and Belgian yeast really compliment each other. It's dry and fruity with an exceptional malt nose. I'm detecting a bit of citrus, but not much honey. It doesn't have that earthy feel that some Belgians' posess. The taste is great as well. It's incredibly smooth with huge bursts of fruit. The malt bill provides a ton of sweetness along with the candy sugar. The honey adds alcohol and a thin finish. The yeast esters really make this beer. The mouthfeel is good. It is a full bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a tremendous beer. I'm not usually a huge fan of Belgian darks, but this one is so fresh and highly complex. Hooray Beer!!
