4.05/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz, waxed-sealed bottle into a Gouden Carolus chalice.

A - Light honey color. Off-white head leaves decent lacing.

S - Sweet plums and Piloncillo (mexican brown sugar), a little band-aid, and a little alcohol.

T - The sweet brown sugar hits first, then mellows (very smoothly) to the plums and a little licorice, then some nice Belgian funk to end. Even though I smelled a little alcohol in the nose, it is very well hidden. Taste is really smooth and well balanced.

M - Medium carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. It really washes very well over the palate without feeling too thick.

D - Medium. The mouthfeel, sweetness, and complexity makes you want to take your time.

Really good beer. Great dessert beer after a good meal or with a good cigar. Lots of layers and very well balanced.
