The Belgians believe in effeciency-10.5%.
I also love the story about the battle over the recipe and it has been brewed since around 1100AD.
Before I tried a bunch of other German and Belgian beer this was one of my favorite brews.
Make no mistake, it is a fine offering. Pours a beautiful glass of very dark brown beer with an uncontrollable head. Lots of malt and caramel taste. There is dark fruit mixed in with the other flavors. I didn't notice much hops. Finishes spicy and full flavored. Compared to other Belgians, this is a little sweet for me. Alchohol is more upfront than in some of the other strong beers I have had.
I love the bottle. A great way to keep light out. I would like to talk to someone who has aged one of these.
