Poured into a snifter

A: chestnut brown with an off-white half finger head that dissipates quickly. Light lacing. Lots of floating fermentation.

S: dark fruits, caramel, Belgian yeast.

T : Follows nose with plums and raisins. Bready malts, banana nut bread with hints of chocolate. Sweet,robust. A Belgian delight.

M: medium with heavy carbonation. Thick, frothy.

O: Worth the $5 price tag. Will definitely drink again. A great celebration sipper.
