Poured into Westy XII glass

Pour: A dark amber brown with a finger size head and a good amount of lacing. Just dark enough to prohibit light from penetrating. Some sediment at the bottom of the glass.

Smell: The belgian yeast is forefront here with a bready mix. I get some dark fruits and a nice whiff of alcohol. There is some caramel and maybe a mild chocolate. Actually a little underwhelming to me.

Taste: Dark fruits like raisins and figs, soaked with alcohol comes to mind first. It is quite sweet and boozy with some caramel and bread, too. The belgian yeast is very prominent in this beer as is the alcohol, especially in the aftertaste. It has a very smooth warming feel to it and it is quite a feat at how well all this is pulled together close to perfection.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a super creamy and smooth feel. Has a rather high carbonation level but somehow does not detract from the smooth feel.

Overall: Well at $6 per 11.2oz this is not a bargain but well worth splurging every once in a while. A very nice treat and an excellent example of the style

Where do I start?

The beer pours a thick head that laces well. The color is a hazy brown that is hard to see through.

Strong caramel notes with smoke, molasses, plum and brown sugar lending some background vocals. Best beer I ever had. Perfect score all around.

First had at the Winking Lizard in Fairlawn, Ohio

Pours a murky brown with a constant thin tan head. Smells ready with dark fruits. Tastes of plum and molasses. Slight boozy taste, but very smooth going down. One of the top 3 quads.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet Purchased in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a muddy borwn body with a medium 1" head that leaves some lacing. A few flakes of settling are present.

S- Tart green apple, belgian funk, molasses, baked bread. Slightly roasty.

T- Starts off with a burnt candied sugar and dark fruit flavor, ends with a sweet caramel, almost smokey malt note. Some booze in the background but quite tasty and sip-demanding.

M- Creamy with a medium-heavy body. Low carbonation. An easy drinker.

I was impressed with this brew and I do have to say that it lived up to the hype, minus the appearance (the flakes were my fault, but really took away from the whole experience. Next time I'll pour it easier). It was super complex and enjoyable to drink.
