Pours a hazy dark crimson-orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, fruit, and cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with Tootsie Roll, caramel, dark fruit, and cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with an interesting Tootsie Roll flavor, but I am also getting a decent amount of oxidation that tells me this one must be fairly old at this point.

Serving type: bottle.

330ml served in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a clear dark amber color forming a medium thin bubbled beige head. Great retention and lots of soapy and molasses lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts and candy sugar. Light flowery hops. Belgian-style bready and earthy yeasts. A bit boozy and a bit bubblegum in the very end. Strong Belgian character, as expected

T: Sweet upfront. Very malty and fruity in the mouth too. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, candy sugar, oak. Some spices and some notes of bubblegum too. Light bitterness in the end. Hops are a bit citrus. Bready and biscuity yeasts profile. Again, quite Belgian

M: Heavy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Warming beer. Candy bittersweet aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Classic Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Recommended
