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.

Opaque dark brown, almost black color, with strong activity. Creamy and foamy sparkly light brown 3 finger island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with strong legs.

Pleasant floral and fruity nose. Flavors of toffee, grains, apricot, banana, coriander, clove, floral and herbal spices. Strong caramel and fruity sweetness creating a toasty and bread feel.

Milky light body with prickly carbonation. Faint and short finish, ending with a fruity and herbal spicy thick tongue feel. A little vinous and flat.

Overall a good craft with decent flavors, a fresh smell, and a superb look. A little stale and flat. Unbalanced being overly sweet with a weird rotten banana feel.
