This is one of my favorite beers so I will try not to be biased.
Poured from a bottle into a glass.
A- Dark brown and very inviting. Nice thick head that lingers for a little while.
S- Great aroma that has a very earthy smell to it. Malty and sweet.
T- An excellent taste. Sweet and Malty. Brown Sugar?
M- Warms the mouth. Good balance of carbonation and refreshingly smooth for a high abv.
O-Overall this is an excellent beer I that I enjoy alot. Reasonably priced and a top notch beer I would recommend to anybody.
I tried to not be biased in this review but its just an excellent beer that deserves high praise. A must try.

330ml bottle poured into Gulden Draak tulip glass. Pours a cola brown color with ruby undertones and a medium sized caramel colored head that dissipates slowly, leaving a quarter inch head and a nice amount of lacing in the glass.
Smell is a dark fruits, plums, cherries, raisins, sweet caramel malt and alcohol.
Taste is just as it smells. Sweet, dense malt upfront with a myriad of dark fruits lending support, including raisins, cherries, and plums. In addition to the sweetness, there's also an herbal quality towards the finish, and some peppery notes. Aftertaste reminds me a bit of cinnamon swirl raisin bread. The 10.5% alcohol is there throughout, with extra punctuation towards the finish. This is a big beer, very complex. Mouthfeel is on the medium-heavy side with a slick, smooth and creamy quality due to the healthy carbonation.
Overall, one of the best strong dark ales in the world and one of my favorite beers period. A treat for the senses, always worth having some on hand. Ages very well. Delicious.
