Poured a beautiful cloudy amber with little head. Looks nice, but more head would raise it higher. Scents of slight bubblegum, grain, some alcohol, dark fruit, Belgian yeast and candi sugar. Quite nice, complex and Belgian in character. Flavor was boozy with a very heavy initial hit of alcohol but also flavors of Belgian yeast, apricot, dark fruit, slight white raisin, slight hints of straw and a somewhat grainy flavor on the finish. Very nice, with flavors of both a Belgian Dark and Belgian Golden. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a slight burn of alcohol. Very good and sippable. Overall this is an excellent beer. It's complex and unique, combining the best of Belgian flavors into a very drinkable whole. Highly recommended.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Massive white mountain head. Stuck around forever and grew in the glass after the pour. Golden color and slightly cloudy.

S: Spiciness, dark dried fruits (plum/raisin) but still crisp, alcohol came in stronger as it warmed, Belgian yeast funk.

T: Sweet and spicy. Huge amounts of dried fruit, you name it cherry/fig/plum. Alcohol and hop spice round it out. To much going on to really explain in words. Slightly dry and sweet on the finish

M: Full. Med to high carbonation, syrup like. Bitterness kicks at the end and the alcohol bite lingers as it warmed. Spicy on the gums.

O: This beer falls somewhere between a Belgian Dark Strong and a Belgian Golden Strong. The appearance would tell me it is a golden, but the flavor and scent says something else. I don't think this beer was designed to fall into our contemporary "categories." Anyway you slice it, this is a very complex beer that should be experienced by all.
