330 ml bottle into chalice, best by 3/10/2015. Pours murky reddish brown color with a 1 finger foamy cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of huge raisin, prune, fig, molasses, bread, toffee, earth, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Very nice and complex aromas with nice strength. Very big on the dark fruits. Taste of raisin, caramel, prune, molasses, biscuit, toffee, herbal, earth, and yeast spices. Light dark fruit tang on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruit, toffee, molasses, biscuit, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; with plenty of robust flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice creamy, slick, and slightly prickly mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong dark ale. Nice flavor balance, depth, and complexity; and extremely smooth to sip on. No complaints, very enjoyable.

11.2oz bottle, poured into my wide mouth Chimay glass, pours a murky rusty brown color with a thin head that sticks around as a foam atop the ale. Doesn't leave any lacing on the glass, but is still nice to look at. Aromas are rich with ripe, dark fruit, bready malt, and it's earthy. Tastes are earthy, fruity, raisin, bread, toffee, yeast - nice meld of flavors. Body is on the thinner side of medium, higher carbonation allows the ale to cover the palate while the alcohol warms with a tingle. It's been a long time coming, but I finally got around to picking this one up. Quality brew from a quality brewery, just as expected.

A: Pours a deep mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. Leaves some trails of lace down the glass.

S: A really pleasant mixture of dark bread, dark fruit and yeast. Some traces of banana and chalky yeast with a hint of coffee and whole wheat bread crust.

T: Opens with a lot of malt sweetness. Freshly baked dark bread, plum and raisin, cola nut, banana and a good amount of Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is a bit thin with a good amount of carbonation. Definitely not up there with the 10 but a great beer nonetheless.

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

The pour was a murky medium chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan head that quickly diminished to a thin cap, which in turn created some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a sweet Belgian yeast with notes of toffee, a plethora of dark fruit (cherries, plums raisons and figs) and a mild alcohol tinge.

The taste was a mild malty sweet with a good toffee note early on, then becoming a bit yeasty with a big note of dark fruit and a pronounced alcohol finish. The flavor however was short lived fading quite quickly proceeding the swallow, with the fruity yeasty alcohol taste disappearing in what seemed like a matter if seconds.

Mouthfeel was somewhere in the middle of light and medium in body with a slightly dry and a bit watery texture and a soft to medium carbonation.

Overall this is a very well put together Belgian Ale, although this one is a tad lighter than the Trappistes 8 & 10 from this brewer. Now don't get me wrong, I truly think they are all exceptional brews...
