Dark reddish-brown with a substantial head. Excellent retention and chunky lacing. Sweet, rum-like nose with plenty of fruity esters. Ripe, dark fruit and Belgian candi sugar notes are abundant.

On the palate, sweetness from malt and candi sugar, a bit medicinal, then becomes dry on the finish. Interplay of both light and dark fruit: apple, plum, and raisin. Carbonation is lively but not harsh, and despite a slight alcohol note this high ABV brew is not boozy.

A must-try for any fan of dark Belgian ales. Very nice sweet-dry/bitter balance.
