Nice tan foam forms as you pour. Hard to catch any aromas, although I traced some coffee, nutmeg, berries, funk. Taste is amazing. This is a very complex beer. I tasted coffee again ( I changed my glass, coffee still present), that boozy Belgian ale flavor was present, and berries.

Drinking this beer is like eating a dark chocolate filled with a raspberry fill. Pleasant to drink, not thick.

Bottle to glass

Appearance - Dark brownish red head. Had a thick off white head. Some carbonation

Smell - Complex, has some dark fruit, raisins, some herbs, yeast is present

Taste - Sweet, herbal taste, dark fruits are predominate, yeast, alcohol is definitely there. Has a dry finish

Overall - Complex is an understatement. One of the best beers from Belgium. I'm sitting on a couple to see of they age of the coming years
