I received this from a friend who recently came back from Belgium on business. Poured into a Boot glass from the same friend.

I have nothing fancy to say, no clever words, no witty observations...just try this beer. Go buy some now. Leave your kids home alone, for there is no time to call a baby-sitter. Don't wait for your spouse, just go...leave before they even get out of the shower...GO!

This beer changed the way I look at beers. I should really hate this beer, in all honesty, as it ruined many other beers for me. I had three of my favorite beers to follow this one with as they were all darker. Palo Santo Marron....meh. Founders Curmudgeon...rubbish. Old Rasputin...I've seen similar shades of brown on the "Stool Color Chart" at the Doctor's office.

I would gladly leave my beloved wife, and shave my head into a silly Tonsure to be able to craft this beer.

Poured into oversized wine glass.

A: Dark brown with large off-white bubbles. Half finger head receded to a quarter finger and lingered. Excellent head retention, with some barista-like swirls covering the top. A bit of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

S: Caramel, plum and dates, a bit of toffee.

T: Sweet dark fruits, plum is dominant fruit flavor, accompanied by dates. Toffee/caramel kicks in towards the end and is carried away by a warm, ever so slightly alcoholic finish. Sweet malts and plum linger. As the beer warmed up, caramel notes became dominant. Gets better throughout the beer - was sad to see the last sip go.

M: Very creamy, medium carbonation, lightly coats the mouth. Very nice.

O: Delicious brew, the 11% ABV is hidden effortlessly. Looked beautiful in the glass, and tasted great to boot. Paired really well with some sharp cheddar cheese.
