A pleasant surprise to find at te LCBO's in Northern Ontario.

A - Pours a rich ruby red, black in the middle and ruby on the edges, solid thumb of head with decent retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Rich caramel and burnt sugar, bready malts and a candied caramel apple finish.

T - Much like the nose the burnt sugar and caramel flavours dominate the palette alongside hints of dark fruit, musty caramel and a bready finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and surprisingly wet.

O - A tasty brew loaded with flavour and well worth seeking out. Glad I had a chance to try it and will grab an extra bottle or two before they disappear.

Been looking forward to this one for some time.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a nice dark Mhogany cloudy colour with an off white foamy head that retains very well.

S - Plenty of figs, burnt sugars, bread, yeast, caramel and toffee.

T - Up front some nice malty notes followed by some spicey sugars with toffee and fig. The finish is a little warm with a nice bitterness. The balance of flavours is of a very high standard.

M - Medium body with medium to full carbonation.

O - This is a big dark Belgian not for the feint hearted. A must try. The balance in this beer is truely impressive.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a goblet glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains brown sugar, caramelized malts, Belgian yeast some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of brown sugar and caramel. Then some Belgian yeast and hearty malt character breadiness comes in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid Belgian brown ale but there are better options in the style.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Best before 02/12/2013.

A: Pours a cloudy ruby with lots of chunks and a 1 finger dense white head. Leaves a real nice head, doesn't dissipate past 1/8" throughout the glass. No real lacing.

S: First there is a woody lemon and yeast. Orange and raisin, maybe some fig. A hint of booze but really not much. A breadiness to it.

T: A cereal malt taste with dark fruits and a hint of hop. Almost a maple syrup taste to it. Very well balanced. A nice malt/fuirty belgian beer.

M: Fairly light yet a dense feel in the mouth. Crisp and easy drinking. Could use some more carbonation. Booze is well hidden.

Overall a well balanced and drinkable dark ale. The aroma is very tasty and lends to a drinkable brew.
