12 oz bottle. Pours deep brown with little head. Not much aroma. Excellent aftertaste. Great Belgian tribute.

A: opaque; dark brown with mahogany at the edges if held to the light; 1 finger khaki head that receded to a wispy cap; no lacing;

S: clove and Belgian yeast are dominant; a hint of citrus in the background;

T: Belgian yeast for a moment, then nutmeg and clove get added it; no bitterness; not much roastiness;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: easy drinking for the style - mainly because of the lower ABV; would paid well with food;

This is definitely a tasty beer, with all the qualities of a very fine quad, but there is something missing, taste if the dark fruits is there, mouthfeel is great but i believe the low abv of this beer doesnt do the very nice taste of the beer justice....you are just waiting for that boozy hit at the end of the sip which never comes....could be a lot better.

On tap at Pizza Paradiso- Dupont Circle. Treading the fine line between a black IPA and a dark saison. More tart than roasty, yeasty, smooth and slick. A real gender bender.

A welcoming beer at the forefront with nice carbonation head and lacing. Appearance is mainly dark with red/brown highlights when put up to a light source. Smells like a Belgian dark with floral and fruity notes and tastes like a Belgian dark with a background of roast, clove, floral and sweetness from fruit. Beer has a nice carbonation that doesn't quite pack a punch - although the alcohol content is above six percent, it is not very noticeable. Overall an enjoyable and easy-to-drink beer.
