3.26/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Brilliant orange and light brown color. Quite impressive. The head came and went so quick, it was off white.

S: Great roasted caramel scent. Slight alcohol spiciness. Dark fruits, plum and raisin.

T: metallic, roasted caramel malt. Again for only 7%, the alcohol is prevalent.

M: watery, slight hop bitterness. For me the metallic flavor lingers to long and the beer leaves me wanting more dried fruit and malt.

O: nothing I would club baby seals to find again. Glad I tried it, but it was not amazing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Beer poured from a bottle.

Beer poured a murky brown colour. Very light aroma of chocolate malt and slightly figgy. Tasted sweet belgian yeasts with a little malt. Not bad, but not much to it. Very drinkable, especially for an 8% abv.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably not, but maybe...

4.09/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 33 cL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a coppery-brown with 1/2 inch light tan head. Decent retention. Faint lacing.
S: Sweet caramel malt, figs (and other dark dried fruit), clove, cinnamon, bready yeast, and a hint of cola.
T: Nice strong dark dried fruit (raisins, figs), caramel malt backbone, molasses, hint of heavy cream, and fairly predominant spices (clove, cinnamon).
M: Sweet with a strong body. ABV lends itself to fortifying the body and yet the beer ends up drinking easier than the 7% would suggest.
D: A nice drinking brew. Solid for style.

3.89/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours cloudy brown with a slightly orange tint. The head is light sandstone in color, near 2 fingers thick and shows good retention.

Smell - Caramelized sugar, hints of raisin, toffee and bread rounds out the aroma.

Taste - Follows the nose. Moderate caramel and toffee notes complimented by lesser dark fruit character. Moderately bready. Fairly straight forward, finishing in much the same way it starts.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full body with soft, bubbly carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy.

Overall - Nice, well-rounded Belgian dark. Sweet, but not overtly so, allowing for a nice, drinkable and approachable brew. I could definitely stand to drink another one.
