A: Deep mahogany with an off-white/light-tan head, light retention & lace.

S: Dark fruit & treacle with hints of spicy phenolics.

T: Raisins, figs, dates, light spicing, hints of cocoa and roasted nut, modest bitterness balances the residual sweetness.

M: Body is a little heavier & the carbonation is a little lighter than many modern Belgian-styled brews.

OD: A really good drinker and overall it really works.
