It was a little disappointing to see this beer comes from the tap and have no head on it considering it's a Belgian but that didn't really seem to detract from the flavors of the beer. It was quite a darker color than I thought it would be as well. It was good to see it put in a proper glass for the style. The beer was really on the sweet side. Lots and lots of Belgian candy sugar seemed to go into this one. It verges on cloying but isn't. There's also some caramel flavors and a husky grainy taste to it. Hops come forth in the finish along with some spicy yeast flavors. Alcohol isn't really that noticeable considering this beer's strength. Went down quite easily. I liked it. My only problem was the price, $5 for 8 oz. Oh well.

Poured a deep maroon with brown highlights with little to no head. Carbonation very evident with small bubbles jumping off the bottom of the tulip and racing for freedom.
Aroma was heavy Belgian candy sugar, brown sugar, spicy yeast and some coriander and orange peel.
Flavor was sweet candy sugar, caramel, citrus orange hints some spicy yeast and hint of bitterness on the end.
Mouthfeel was very pleasant and wonderfully smooth throughout with a dry alocohol finish. Ever so slight cloying sweetness on the end which really didn't add or detract from the feel.
Drinkability was very high for 10.5% ABV, so watch out.
