Pours a dark amber, syrup-like in both taste and appearance. I taste a hint of molasses, the alcohol being hidden somewhat at about 8.5%. It pours with a thick head that quickly goes away; Certainly a highly carbonated beer.

It has a sweet, sticky taste, and it'll fill you up. Strong hints of caramelized sugar and molasses overpowering other tastes in the beer. Incredibly rich body, this is a beer you'll want to sip delicately and slowly.

Overall, this is a well above average beer. For a dark Belgian ale, I'd say it's worth the price you'd probably find it for at most places (about $12 for a pint at my local liquor store). I'll admit I'm not as familiar as I should be with this type of style, but it's a really solid beer, and one I'd recommend to people.

Pours dark brown with a two finger foamy tan head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has green apples, pears, brown sugar, caramel, dark fruit, and phenols.

Tastes just like it smells. Green apples, pears, brown sugar, caramel, dark fruit, and phenols. Sweet, but somewhat balanced by some hop bitterness.

Medium bodied, smooth, creamy, with plenty of carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden. I could drink a good BSDA like this all the time.
