Ruby with tinges of brown with a persistent finger of bubbly foam. The smell is fragrant with licorice and molasses present and some dark fruits. The taste is rich and sweet dark fruits with a bit of alcohol in the back. All in all a nice quad. Thanks to Byronic for bringing this back from Belgium for me.

Bottled in 2008. Murky dark rusty brown pour with a huge three finger head with decent retention and lacing. Sweet, malty, boozey nose with lots of brown bread and dark fruit along with hints of toffee, nuts, and subtle chocolate. The taste follows suit with rich dark fruit and sweet caramel malt along with hints of prunes, licorice, brown bread, tea, leather, subtle chocolate, and booze. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly syrupy with a surprising amount of fizzy carbonation still present for such an old beer. The boozey finish I remembered from fresher bottles has become much smoother with age. Overall, this has held up nicely in the cellar with only a slight criticism of a bit too much sweetness.

Dark brown reddish color with a huge thick beige head with good retention and leaving a good deal of laces.
Nice aroma of oranges, pineapple soaked in rum, tea bags, plums, licorice, crystalized fruits, malty but not roasted as color hints.
Bold flavor full of yeast spices, candied sugar, chocolate, dark and crystalized fruits, figs, perfume, herbal hops, nuts, caramels, grape juice, oak and pine. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 12% abv is quite well hidden.
Flavorful and complex beer and as hoppy as most Belgian IPAs. Not cloying once it is not that sweet.
Excellent beer, good sipper for a cold day such as today. I haven’t had this in over a year. In my opinion it is underrated, you got to drink it quite close to expiration date.
