3.53/5  rDev -16.5%

Bottle poured into 16oz chalice two and a half finger soda head

Dark brown tea color

Smelled of barley malt and hops

Tasted malt and hop bitterness, and alcohol

Mouthfeel: Warming and thick, the alcohol really came into play here.

Overall, I can see why so many people consider this to be a world class beer. I for one probably would opt out of having it again.

Another widely available beer that I should have tried years ago. Poured from a 750 ml white, corked and caged bottle into my Chimay goblet. mahogany brown color with some light getting through. Big, delicately bubbling white head that fades to a long lsting covering of the top of the glass. More lacing than a lot of strong Belgians. Looks good!!!

Smell is a bit mild for a Belgian Strong Ale. Some dark fruit: plums, raisins and cherries as well as Belgian yeast.

Taste is more robust. The dark fruit and yeast are prominent as they should be. There is also some candi sugar and caramel malts. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is rich and sweet. There is a definite alcohol presence that goes beyond warming. The alcohol cuts the sweetness and is not off-putting in itself.

A solid Strong Dark Ale.
