Served on tap in Belgium. Also purchase it in bottles.

The beer pours a murky brown. It smells sweet, malty, with hints of spices. It taste malty and sweet, with a little "slimy" feel to it (not in a bad way). There is a slight bitterness at the end.

Would I buy it again? Yes,

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a murky reddish/mahogany brown color with about an inch light tan head that stayed around a little while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is very nice, it smells like dark fruit, caramel, yeast, spice and some candied fruit. Taste pretty much is the same as the aroma, but there's also some candy sugar and bready malt noticeable. It's a very sweet and malty brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good beer. I know I'd buy this again.
