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.

Bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a light high head. Has good aroma and very crisp carbonation. The taste is excellent! I really enjoyed this brew and would buy it again. Just a flat out good Belgium beer.

Bottom Line: If you see it buy it! as its enjoyable!
