As a preface to this review I will admit that this is one of my all time favorites and that I've been craving it, so that might amplify the scores a bit. Regardless, this is my actual opinion on this compared to other strong darks I've tried.

Serving type was a bomber poured into a Mad Elf tulip style glass. Poured smooth and creamy brown, almost like cream soda but a bit darker, with a big fluffy head that dissipated after a minute or so leaving a nice lacing.

Smell is sweet and fruity with a tinge of alcohol and medicine.

Taste is spicy in a way that compliments the fruit and medicine tastes perfectly, alcohol is well hidden considering the size of the brew but still somewhat visible.

Mouth-feel is smooth, not too light yet not at all viscous.

Overall a highly recommended beer to any Belgian ale lover, especially those liking a good spice or fruit/medicine flavor.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged at Euclid Hall into a tuplip glass.

A: Perfect brown with a nice latte colored head that starts high but fades in time. Fantastic lacing and tight bubbles.

S: Caramel and toffee up front but not too sweet. Plums and dark fruit follow and intices the senses. You can pickup bannana notes from the yeast as well.

T: Caramel up front and toffee to finish. Now the finish is very very long and the flavor is a bit fleeting. Makes you want to keep sipping honestly. Warm and slightly booze on the back of the throat. Great hints of dark plum and cherries for fruit and the caramelized malts for the sweetness. Has a nice bite too.

M: This is a full bodied beer for sure! The carbination is perfect as is the balance of this beer between heavy and sweet. The finish lingers but the fruit dies fast forcing you to keep sipping, i love it.

D: This is an amazing beer and one that should be put on a pedastal for Belgium beers. This is a sipper and one that should be shared amongst friends over a fire in leather chairs smoking a stoggie. I would give this beer as a gift to anyone I truly cared about and share it with only those that could appreciate it.
