Poured from bomber into Chimay chalice. Second time trying, first time beer was to cold.
I start this beer by leaving it on counter until it warms up a bit from the fridge. After a pretty hard pour im left with a dark brown glass of nectar with little to no head and zero lacing. The aromas this beer gives off are really amazing after it becomes room temp. I get Chili, hot chocoalate, vanilla and some bourbon in the background. Smells fantastic. The taste is right there with the smells. Right away i get chocolate, bourbon, roasted malt, some orange, and the chili is there too. This is a smooth beer, the mouth feel and carbonation are both spot on. ABV is very well masked. The warmer this beer gets the better it tastes. Im glad i have two more to try later on down the road.
