look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Can: Poured a dark burgundy color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry figs with quite a bit of residual sugar and some caramelized malt. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt with too much residual sugar and some dry figs. Body is about average with good carbonation and light apparent alcohol. I thought this one was lacking balance with too much residuals sugar. It could be my mind playing tricks but I prefer my Belgian ale bottle conditioned not in cans.

Poured into DFH signature glass. Canned on 3-26-12.

Appearance: Hazy, dark reddish-brown, 1/2 finger head, some lacing, not much, some sediment chunks falling to the bottom. Hmmm..

Aroma: Here we go...cinnamon, oak, vanilla, fig, raisin, caramel, dark fruit, some banana and clove from the yeast, sweet malts, not much alcohol.

Taste: Sweet malts, caramel, light cocoa, oak, fig, vanilla, banana, clove, spices, again not much alcohol in the taste if any.

Body: Pretty rich, almost like a good scotch ale.

Finish: Oak, fig, caramel and some chocolate. Overall its pretty amazing stuff. I think I like it better fresh though. I don't think that this improved any with age. But at 8.3%, I don't think it was really meant to age.
