Pours a hazy brown color with minimal head that disappears quickly. No discernable aroma. Tastes of plums and sugar. Good flavor. Good mouth feel.

This beer pours hazy and cloudy brown. Mud like in appearance, but its unfiltered, so who cares. Smell is of sweet belgian malts and some plums/raisins. Taste is pretty sweet but the fruit balances it out somewhat. Maybe a hint of booze / fake sugar flavor in the taste. Nice thick mouthfeel. Glad I got to try this. On fat tuesday no less.

Stopped into Vivant 3-14-15 after scoring KBS today. This beer is exactly as it is promoted on the beer menu. First, the pub is fantastic and the food (I got yhe Pastrami and my wife got the pub burger) was equally fantastic. The dips and sauces were great and the atmosphere was relaxing.

Anyways, the beer: Fat Paczki is very sweet, huge prune-raisins, very smooth. Had it in a tulip. Smell was big robust malt, sweetness. I'm good w/sweet beers and this one was spot on. Will enjoy again next time I go to Grand Rapids.
