11.2 oz bottle. Poured into a snifter.

Hazy mahogany in color and light tan head. Plenty of visible carbonation. Little lacing to speak of.

Dark candied fruits in the nose. Some toffee and dark caramel as well.

Whoa. Plenty of depth. Layers of caramel with tobacco notes. Some vanilla and oaky characters come through. Little traces of alcohol but nothing that takes away from overall beauty of this Belgian strong ale. Dark candi sugar comes through in a slight sweetness.

Finish is exactly what you would expect, bone dry. Lingers on the tongue but it is a stone fruit/tobacco note.

This is really a spectacular example of the style. Comes across beautifully.
