Poured from a bottle into a brand new (bought the same day of the beer) Piraat snifter.
Appearance: Poured a thick pillowy, white as snow head that never goes away. Color is gold as gold can be. Heavy lacing.
Smell: Subdued, light banana, some malt, very nice.
Taste: Wonderful. Banana malty (I'm trying to described spliced banana and malt, meaning the taste was one flavor not two), clove, spice, some alcohol at the end. Some btreadiness in there too. Definitely some Belgian candy sugar up front with some slight hints of apple as the beer finishes. A very lingering flavor.
Mouthfeel: Thick, syrupy, heavy, good.
Drinkability: I loved drinking this. One would not be able to drink too many because of the alcohol and because its a slight challenge to finish it. Not, Storm King challenging, but a challenge never the less.
Will most assuredly be drinking this beer more in the future.
Serving type: bottle
