330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a large long lasting off white head with very good head retention and lacing. Aroma and taste of sweet caramel malt, Belgian yeast, brown sugar,some dark fruit notes with hops bitterness. Palate is full body, smooth with good carbonation. This brew finishes with a full flavored caramel malt sweetness, a good amount of Belgian yeast, dark fruit and a fairly sharp lingering bitter hops flavor on the end with some brown sugar and molasses and yeast. Alcohol seems well hidden. Overall a very good, balanced and tasty brew.

Pours an orange colour, cloudy. Head is whispy, white, specks of lace. Not bad.

Smells hoppy, somewhat salty. Resinous, woody, touch of peach. Some sweetness, touch of savoury. OK.

Taste is pleasant. Sticky caramel notes with pineapple, peach and a touch of pine resin. Pink pepper on back, wood resin some cloves even. Pleasant enough, but fairly generic with the hop complexity and not much else.

Bit of a dry feel, quite warm, but smooth texture.

Not bad, drinks OK for the strength.
