Dark brown color, reasonably clear with dark ruby highlights. The beer formed a nice head that showed good retention, but there is no lace left on the side of the glass as it recedes. Nice full nose. Tons of yeasty bread, dark berry fruit in the from of black cherry and black berry tumbles from the glass. Figs, dates, all of the dark caramel essence you would expect from a fine Belgian style ale. The flavor reflects the aroma quite well. The dark berry character comes up front. The black cherry is very prominent. Nice fig element mid drink with just a touch of orange citrus on the finish. Spice comes through late in the finish, just a little nutmeg character. Nice smooth, and full mouth feel. No alcohol heat (surprising at this strength. Really wonderful beer.
