Thanks to Liz and Rex for this one! Had while having a drink out paint out.
A Nice dark brown, fluffed fairly resilient white head, leaving some pretty lacing.
S Lots of roasted sweetness, caramel nose.
T Taste was a lot more of the roasted sweetness, some fruit, some winey tartness, and overall maltyness.
M Felt creamy and silky in the mouth, good carbonation level, nice roasted malty aftertaste.
O Overall very good, delicious and satisfying familiar belgium malty yummy flavors. Greatly enjoyed with great people.

11.2 ox beer was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a crimson mahogany color with some clarity when held up to a light. There are tiny little bubbles coming up through the glass top. There is some yeast sediment that has settled to the bottom of the glass.

Smell: caramel, molasses, cherries, tobacco, spiciness, boozy alcohol, and yeasty notes too.

Taste: super sweet delicious. All of the above aromas blended well together.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, warm boozy alcohol, spicy, and low to medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty solid BDSA that I have enjoyed many times before, right now and many more in the future.

Poured into an Innis and Gun glass

A- Pours a dark ruby. Had a thick head at first, but it didn't last that long. Lacing evident.

S- Smells sweet and spicy, with some of that wild yeast scent that's usually a sign of a good beer.

T- Started off tasting sweet, like dates or figs, but the more I drink it the more flavors are evident. Sweet, dark bread, spices, fruit, wild yeast, caramel, molasses.

M- Not as heavy as one would expect from this style. Goes down very easy without being too light.

O- What I like about this beer is that there really is more flavor as you drink it. It's definitely worth getting, and I know I'm getting this one again.
