Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with quite a bit of residual sugar and some Belgian biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by light dry fruits notes with some Belgian cookie malt and quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall but lacking complexities for the style.

A creamy beige head leaving lacings forms over a brown to reddish body. Aroma is caramel and light roasted malts . A touch of spices too. The flavor is mostly sweet (dried fruits and chocolate) and has a light bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Not my type of beer, but a decent one for the style.
