look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Slightly hazy dark brown body. Cream colored 2" fluffy head that reduces fairly quickly to a white ring.

S- Funky, fermented fruit, banana, prunes

T- Heavy malt characteristics, slightly wheaty with a little caramel in the background. The finish is spicy, peppery and slightly burning, but the 9.4 ABV was nicely masked.

M- Medium body, medium carbonation

Overall, a decently crafted brew. Not my favorite of Belgian, but complex nonetheless. Worth a try
