From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 7, 2014.

It is a downright gorgeous pour with its deep amber color and ruby red highlights flickering against the light. Big but short lived cream colored head.

The aroma tends to lean toward the grape and wine-like fruitiness more than the Belgian malts and Belgian sugar, given its style. It is pleasant enough but not what I had hoped for.

The body is about medium but it is smooth.

The taste has an appealing toasted pale malt note but it also has an abundance of dark fruits akin to grape more than any other I can think of. The fruitiness tends to offset everything else and to me takes away from what I expect in this style. Not that it is bad but it not what I expected.

I like to try anything new and different and I think this one id different for me. Normally I am a hoppy taste person. This strong dark ale is amazingly smooth and the flavor is outstanding. Highly carbonated, my first pour created a 2 finger head and the pour was gentle. The 1st pour from the 25 ounce bomber was surprising due to the large head that stayed for a long time. Can't wait for the second pour to finish the bottle. I would definitely buy this again.
