Very dark with light tan head. Good lacing down sides of glass.

Smell is of very ripe fruit including plums and banana.

Taste is sweet with lots of fruit and cinnamon. Very little bitterness.

Good carbonation. Very smooth and medium bodied.

Overall this is very nice. Easy to drink. Will definitely buy again.

A - Very dark brown and very nice tan head that stays throughout the beer. The lacing coats the glass.

S - Very subtle but I get sweetness and breadiness. Not an overpowering smell.

T - Nice sweet breadiness and you get some carbonation and then a bit of tart flavor with an aftertaste of alcohol.

M - Creamy and very easy to drink. Smooth.

O - This is a great beer that is mmm.

Pours a deep amber bordering on dark brown that has a mountain of off white, dense head that has great retention. The nose has faint spice notes with fruity aromas including apples and dark fruit. The flavor reminds me of apple pie; delicious baked apples, mild spices, doughy malt. There are some alcohol esters and warmth throughout. It's medium bodied and very smooth with a good amount of carbonation.

This is a pretty good, drinkable Belgian. The alcohol is noticeable, but it doesn't really detract from the overall drinkability. This truly does drink like dessert with almost perfect apple pie like flavors. I would get this again.
