11.2 ounce bottle poured into Corsendonk Christmas glass. Removed from the refrigerator 45 minutes ahead of the pour.
Very nice amber pour, with an off-white head that was purposely delivered. Very nice lacing that lasts a while.
Smells a little sweet, some caramel and toffee, and maybe fig. No alcohol smell (to me)
Tastes great. Not too sweet, taste of caramel, malt, no raisin like other Belgian beers. No alcohol at all (to me)
Medium body. A little thick.
Definitely a nice treat. You could drink more than 1, but you had better monitor your intake....

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!
