look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed this 11.2oz stubby bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark, slightly hazy, amber hue with a huge, fizzy, white head that lasts forever and slowly dissipates down the side of the glass ending in a huge lace.

S: Strong dark fruit aroma with a Belgian yeast background.

T: Smooth slightly sweet and tart with a dark fruit flavor mixed with some caramel on the dry sweet side.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Excellent Belgian dark ale.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Dark, brown-red ruby color. Very small head of light foam, lovely tracing but little staying power.

Smell: Wood, earth, sweetgrass, malts.

Taste: Much lighter than I would have expected. Cereals, cocoa, spice, light smoke.

Mouthfeel: Light, gentle heat from the alcohol, clean.

Overall: Another hit from this brewery. the Belgians know what they are doing. I can see pairing this with cured meats, heavy cheeses, pears, and blackberries. A lovely thing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 33 cl bottle into a Corendonk snifter.
A: Pours dark reddish-brown with 1/2 inch light tan head. Excellent retention and a nice coat of lacing left on the glass with each tip.
S: Lightly sweet and very fruity with some bready malt.
T: Flavorful with sweet and bitter in about equal measure. Nicely fruity with dark fruit (raisins, figs), plums, caramel, dark bread, molasses, and light spices.
M: Medium-full body. Very smooth. Soft, medium carbonation.
O: Excellent but short of world class.
