Color - thick and cloudy unfiltered maple syrup.

Aroma- sweet nutty caramel.

Taste- Starts with a velvety dark cherry note mildly shifting to a buttery Belgian yeasty spiciness, finishing with a dark chocolate dry lingering beauty.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 5/4/13.

Picked this up on clearance at College Liquors in Westminster, still months to best buy date and I tend to like quads. Unfortunately this beer is OK but nothing special, too much booze in both smell and taste, and I am typically a big fan of the big beers. This is not a beer I would grab again, but certainly not a bad beer. Basically, meh.

Have to admit the beer grew on me as I had my second glass, got used to the alcohol content, enjoyed it more and raised a few of my scores. may have to change my idea that I would not buy again if I found it at a good price
