Pours a deep dark brown with a flourishing head of beige foam that recedes to a very thin cap. Soapy lacing and alcohol legs. On the nose it’s cherries, bready yeast, strong malt undertones, sticky fruit and some horse blanket. The hops are forward on the palate with a little pepper accompanied by the yeasty sweetness and the ripe fruits. The malt is good and strong like a dark beer should be but the balance is perfection. It has a medium-heavy body but it’s practically weightless on the palate and finishes off-dry with some alcohol warming. This ale has dash and a soaring spirit. One of the best.

Poured a deep dark amber. Very dark pour. No head at all.

The smell is dark fruits and sugar. The fruits smell like an apple/pear mix with just a touch of sourness maybe. There's also some malt but it's hidden beneath the other complex dark flavors.

The flavor is similar to the nose. Sweet dark fruits (apple and pears again) with some malts. Spicy belgian yeast dominates quickly after the initial flavor. Warming alcohol at the end.

Tons of prickly carbonation give this brew a good body.

Great beer. Wonderful nose and taste with several complex layers while being very drinkable.
