Attractive dark amber with a creamy foam on the second pour.

Starts out sweet with the dry yeasty edge. This tastes very much in the Belgian style to me. It's actually better than a lot of actual Belgian dark beers. This is cleaner, with just enough funk, and it has a bitterish edge that is the right counterbalance to the sugars. Smooth caramel finish.

Tremendously drinkable and not excessively strong. It's complex, intriguingly fruity, and has that mysterious Belgian yeastiness. From the 3.75 ml bottle purchased in Tucson (thanks, Jason).
