Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
L - Poured a dark black with a slight tan head.
S - Smells of chocolate and raspberry.
T - just like the smell, chocolate and raspberry.
F - thick with light carbonation.
O - Really good beer. Seems like a stout more than a Belgian ale, but I really liked it.

Pours black as night, drinks smooth as silk. A nice chocolate/raspberry smell, with a burnt carmel background. Surprise, suprise, the taste matches the smell. Very smooth, with no heat from the 8% ABV. This is the best that I've had from Big Boss to date.
