On par with the much praised Westvleteren. Aroma is full of dark fruits like cherry and date and spicy. A dark brown body supports a huge three finger thick Belgian beauty of a head. Has the taste of spiced bread pudding dipped in choclate liquor and the mouthfeel to match. Very tasty with a long lingering aftertaste.

A: Poured into a Straffe Hendrik tulip glass and came out a hazy amber to brown color and created a sizable head--say two to three inches. Strong lacing.

S: A strong smell of sweet fruits.

M: A thick but not overwhelming feel in the mouth.

T: Significant carbonation. Medium to heavy bodies. A sweet fruity finish.

D: The alcohol is very well masked--any limit on drinkability is because of the relative body of the drink.
