Pours an opaque woody brown. Off-white lacing for a head.
Smells of caramel, cherries, bretty yeasts, mild nuttiness, a hint of spice and grassy malts.
Flavor of caramel, buttered bread, apples, almonds, a hint of scotch, and a mild hop bitter aftertaste.
Full body with fluffy carbonation on the roof of the mouth and notable alcohol stinging, plus a warming sensation going down.
Really fantastic, among the best of the best of Belgian dark ales. Scaldis now officially makes two of my favorite beers of all time. I'd been looking for this one for a few years now around Christmas and I am happy to say I am not disappointed. Definitely a sipper, doesn't much try to conceal its strength, which is fine by me. A must-try and will look to have this again and again.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a dark, rich, ruby-caramel coloring that is slightly murky, and starts with a frothy, bubbly, off-white head that quickly disappears. Slow trails of carbonation bubbles throughout the body of the beer. Aromas of grape, fig, raisin, and date on the forward bouquet, with earthy notes, cherry highlights, hints of booze, and a very subtle spice blend. Very rich and robust nose. Flavors are very rich and chewy forward, with lots of old world fruit and a heavy helping of warmth flourishing the taste buds. The rich and sweet notes blend terrifically, with heavy cherry and fig notes in the forefront. Very rich, robust, and heavy bodied beer, with a building warmth at the end of the palate. There is a sharpness that cuts through the end of the beer, likely a combination of the increased ABV and the carbonation. It truly helps to keep the drinkability up. Sweet candied notes in the aftertaste combine with the old world fruit characteristics, lightening them up a bit right before the slick, clean finish. It's really impressive how a beer this big clears the palate so quickly at the tail-end. Great beer!
