A fantastic Belgian dark strong ale poured from a 11.2 oz bottle. Ale pours a nice deep dark
brown with a nice light tan head and great lacing. Nose of Belgian candy sugar, raisins, sweet
fresh bread, hints of licorice, and a dash of cocoa. Taste is phenomenal with a great candy
malt profile on the back and sides with candy sugars reigning supreme with flavors of plums,
raisins, and cocoa leaving an earthy malty sweet aftertaste. Lively mouthfeel makes this one
highly drinkable despite the strong ABV which remains somewhat hidden till the warmth kicks
in. Personally would desire this one on tap, it is simply phenomenal.
A new favorite.

09/08/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Thick & caramel-like. A bit much for Early Sept. more a wintry thing.

Great Strong Dark Ale from Belgium. Of a dark brown color and a big and dense yellowish foam.
Smell is full of chocolate notes, is malty and a bit hoppy. Some bread notes too.
Taste is similar, the maltiness balances quite well the alcoholic level. It's more refreshing that it seems.
Medium body and great carbonation.

Black brownish color with a thick caramel head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Malty aroma with notes of licorice, coffee, cocoa, toffee and at a relative lower degree of dark fruits.
Bold and delicious flavor also quite malty with notes of roasted malts, caramels, cocoa powder, pepper, earthy and grassy hops, coffee, prunes and licorice. Dry aftertaste with a lingering roasted note and some tannin.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9% abv is dangerously hidden. Sticky sensation.
Interesting take of a BSDA with a greater focus on roasted malts.
