Mahogany color with a two finger beige thick head with good retention and leaving a lots of laces.
Pleasant malty aroma, faint hay, chocolates, grapes and dark fruits. I could smell this forever.
Great flavor, heavy on spicy yeast which pleasantly stings your tongue, unexpectedly hoppy (it seems to have more than the 20+ estimated IBUs by experts) with notes of prunes, earth, herbal hops, light wood, roasted and nutty malts, bread crust, fig jam, candied sugar and licorice. Quite dry aftertaste with good tannins and a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Really hard to believe alcohol is at 9% abv.
What an excellent Belgian Brown Ale, nice malty sweet and mild sour sensation and great complexity. Highly recommendable.
