I had to decide between this and the Delirium Tremens (cash flow issue), but went with this since it's new.
Poured this into my Chimay chalice just below room temp. The cork came out real easy. Pours a creamy dark brown color with big thick head, despite a real gentle pour. I had to let it sit for a few minutes before the head faded, and it left all sorts of sticky lacing. Smells malty sweet and I get a hint of smokiness. There is some spice in the smell as well, with a bit of alcohol mixed in. A balanced aroma...no single scent jumps out. The taste follows the nose. Sweet, malty, spicy. A touch of honey in there as well. A surprisingly dry mouthfeel. Heavy, but dry. Leaves a bit of stick behind. Minimal carbonation. A very nice, drinkable beer.
