These Belgian beers always do an amazing job creating massive head. This beer has the near explosive levels of carbonation of a Duvel, but is vastly thicker and more creamy. The body is cherry colored, extremely cloudy, and dense.
A blend of cherry, date, fig, rum, and finishing a few spices.
I don't really get the hype on this one. A lot of complex fruity flavors soaked in spiced rum. There's a lot of intense flavor here which I suppose is a big selling point, but the strong alcohol notes really confuse this one. The finish as it warms is taking on a butter scotch flavor that is drowning out some of the alcohol. I really like how this beer is warming up, this one i think is best room temp.
Rather thick with a lack of carbonation in the glass. A bit too much alcohol at first, but it subsides a good bit.
Beautiful beer that has an extremely unique flavor profile for this style. I very well might consider trying this one again. That said at 10.3% it isn't something I'll look for often.
