12oz foiled, screw-cap bottle served unapologetically in pint glass. Best before 10-26-15. Beer is dark brown with hints of red and forms a massive head, with giant soda bubbles. Yeasty, fresh aroma. Flavor combines bright Belgian ale malt flavors with rich date, sour cherry, and plum fruit flavors. Spicy up front (cinnamon, clove). Raisiny dark fruit really comes through in the aftertaste. A healthy dose of carbonation keeps the beer refreshing and prevents the beer from getting heavy on the palate. Extremely drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown with a slight red tint. Good foam that hangs around for a while.

Smell: Malt and dark fruits.

Taste: Dark fruits, caramel, malts, cocoa.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slight bittersweet aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. If you're looking for a Belgian dark strong ale, this is a good place to start. Smoooth, complex, and balanced. It's on the sweet side of bittersweet, but only by a few inches. Good stuff.
