Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. Two finger, off white head with excellent retention. A dark, hazy mahogany. Beautiful.

Smell. Dark fruits, raisins, apricots, molasses and yeast. A lovely bouquet for sure.

Taste. Hearty flavor. Raisin bread, malty molasses with a light, refreshing finish of fruity apricots and yeast. A kiss of booze warms up the whole flavor and ties it all together nicely.

This is truly a rich brew. Medium-bodied with some nice, not overbearing carbonation along with the bready flavor gives it a hearty feel.

Drinkable. One that I could easily session during a cold winter night like tonight. Warming, hearty, tasty. A winner.

On-tap at Lucky Baldwin's Belgian Festival. It's a somewhat murky brown with traces of red. Ripe fruit is present in the smell and taste. Althought it's a very nice beer, my expectations were a bit elevated and the taste didn't quite come through like expected. Everything works nicely together, but it's not a world-beater.
