September 15, 2014

11.2 oz bottle; tulip

A – Pours dark reddish brown, with an inch and a half of light tan, thick foam. Head slowly settles to a couple centimeters on top. Look warm, like a fireside and leather-bound book beer. (4.25)

S – Raisins and creamy toffee. Dark fruit, maybe cherries. Some fruity esters become prominent on deeper sniffs. A hint of chocolate, maybe raspberry syrup. Some sweetness, like dark, caramelized sugar. (4.00)

T – Toffee and lots of dark fruit. Some acidic bitterness on the tongue, dark toast and raisin bread. Very very minor tartness in the background. No alcohol flavor. (4.00)

M – Thick foamy bubbles, some sweetness, and mild bitter acidity. Cleanses the palate, some residual sweetness in the back of the throat, bitterness on the tongue. Mild alcohol warmth, though I had to look for it. (3.50)

O – Very good beer, and a solid example of a strong Belgian dark ale. Somewhere between a dubbel and a quad. Would gladly drink it again, but it doesn’t stand out that much from other examples for me. (4.00)

Still looking for perfect beer, this one is almost there for Belgian ales.
