4.55/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Chilled bottle poured into a Goulden Draak tulip glass with a handsome golden trim around the top of the glass.

Pours very similar to a Duvel with a thick, yet egg white towards darkish, head taking over the thinned out section towards the top of the glass. Healthy retention keeps the head in the game and lacing is tight.

Color is coffee brown and when held to the light opens up just slightly to a deep red hue towards the bottom of the glass.

Nose is made of a confusing group of sweet flavors and its hard to put your finger on something in particular, anyways its probably best left to that and give up on the nose because taste is where this one is at.

Taste is very strong in the way of sweet malt and a touch of freshly released molasses only assists in improving that. Whilst those two flavors over power anything else it does not matter - those flavors are a real treat.

The body is very well rounded and borders on full. The high alcohol volume doesn't translate. One smooth almost syrup like dark ale that delivers sweet malt notes and finishes with a gradual decline towards peppery end tones.

One great beer and a must for just about anyone
