look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - opened with a slightly delayed gushing despite having had a stable home prior to opening, and as such roused some of the yeast, resulting in a cloudy beer with floaties in it; otherwise, pours a sienna color with a one finger larger bubbled off-white head with good retention, as all the small bubbles seem to stick around

S - this brewery is quite good at getting a very appealing raisinets aroma (see also the Oerbier) to come out, with just a hint of ethanol to give some complexity to the various sugars at work here, a wildflower honey and caramel aroma coming out on top with a few background notes of black licorice, some malt breadiness, a little clove

T - starts off with that caramel flavor, transitions to some peppery spiciness and clove-like phenols (and a smack of hop bitterness to balance it out) accentuated by the mildly hot ethanol finish

M - full bodied and dextrinous, almost like chewing on a caramel candy but without any kind of cloying sweetness

D - there's a lot going on in this beer, but it doesn't fatigue the palate, even though you expect it to with its strong aroma and high abv level; to some extent the phenolic/alcoholic finish does limit the drinkability some, but I certainly didn't want it stop at one with this beer

330ml bottle served in a Trapping glass.

A: Pours a cloudy orange to amber color forming a medium creamy white head. Good retention. Never disappears completely leaving a thin layer and many lacings around

S: Very fruity in the nose. Plums and pears mainly with notes of caramel malts, honey and bready yeasts

T: Follows the nose. Very sweet and fruity upfront. Notes of caramel, caramel malts and bread. Honey and citrus hops in the end

M: Heavy and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Malty and slightly bitter aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Great beer. De Dolle quality
