22 oz bottle served in a pint glass

A - Dark brown with ruby tint with some light penetrating. One finger ecru head with moderate lacing and minimal head retention.

S - Light aroma of dried cherries and figs.

T - Wow, great dark fruits with cherry predominating accompanied by figs, plums and also caramel malts. Sweet throughout with a nice alcohol flavor and a bold somewhat dry and slightly bitter finish.

M - Full body with moderate carbonation

O - I really enjoyed this and find this to be very easy to palate. I wish the smell was a bit stronger and the head stuck around longer but other than that, it truly is an excellent dark ale. I'd drink this almost anytime.

Handsome like polished dark wood. Head settles into a patchy covering stretched thin about the goblet; there's some good retention around the rim of the glass.

Big juicy ripe fruit snacks hit me like it's the fourth grade. Grape. Fig. Delicious.

The taste is chewy plum and spice. Spice that isn’t so detectable in the nose comes through nicely here.

Lively carbonation tickles the tongue. Some drying and warming alcohol on the exhale.

Fantastic. One of the nicest beers I’ve had in a long time.

Thanks Liz for the bottle!
355 mL bottle into a whisky tumbler.

A: Dark brown with reddish hues when held to the light, almost root-beer colored. Frothy white head retains well, good lacing.

S: Belgian spice, sweetness like caramel, dark fruit, and brown sugar.

T: nice sweet Belgian spice up front gives way to a tangy peppery caramel and plumb character. Ends with a very mild bitterness and hint of alcohol.

M: a bit dry, smooth, a hint of alcohol heat, good mouthfeel but maybe a bit over-done on the carbonation.

O: definitely a good Belgian-style. Would recommend. Very easy drinking for a 9% brew.

A dark pour with minimal head for a Belgian, and no real outstanding smells (except a slight hint of Belgian yeast). However, the taste is amazing. Fruity and some nut flavors come out in a flavor bouquet. Very complex beer that maintains its flavors in the mouth for a good duration. It has that perfect Belgian bite. An overall masterpiece of flavor.
