Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a brown color with about a finger and a half of off white foam. Moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of dark fruits, some bready malts, and booze. Maybe a hint of some spices as well.

t - Tastes mostly of dark fruits, especially raisins and dates.I also got a little bit of banana, as well as the taste of sweet malts and a tiny hint of booze, but not as much as in the smell. Pretty nice.

m - A sticky sweet taste with a medium body and little carbonation. A little alcohol taste to it but considering the ABV not too bad.

d - I thought this was an above average Belgian. I enjoyed the sweet smell and taste of dark fruits and sweet malts, and would definitely try this again.

750 ml cage and cork - 2017 version - Christmas dinner drinking. Pours a mahogany colour - definite reddish hue - off whitish head. Smells of molasses, bit of licorice (though I am thinking I may oddly interchange those two), boozy dark fruits. Taste of sweet raisins, date, bit of cherry on caramel malt. I still get a bit of licorice and molasses. Boozy smooth mouth feel with warming finish. Certainly a beer that if you start drinking cold, let it warm to suggested temperature/cellar temperture. Very good.
