I like a strong beer as long as it doesn't have that taste of alcohol on the after bite. This beer is strong full of flavor and no alcohol taste. If you like ales pick this up. I recently tried Pike Brewing's Monk's Uncle and would not suggest it. If you're looking for a strong ale buy this, you will not be disappointed.

An amber color with a frothy cream colored head.
The Belgian yeast, candied sugar, baking spices, and pepper is there in the aroma along with a spicy pineapple like fruit, phenol, and apple/pear.
The hop flavors plow through the base snd use it as a backdrop. Peach and tangerine with green pepper and floral/herbal flavors overtop of apple, coriander, and cloves. Resinous and prickly finish.

On tap. Poured a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of caramel, toffee and dried fruit. Sweet caramel flavor with green apple and a spicy bite.

Lots of fruity aroma, plus a yeasty presence on the nose.
The taste is the same-- citrus and spices and bread. Can't tell right away that it is a high alcohol content.
Overall, a very decent brew.

Updated 8/31/16.

Look: Sound Brewery tasting glass, on draft. Dark yellow body, thin white head.

Smell: Orange, tangerine, peach, and a vegetal green pepper note.

Taste: Same as above, with a hint of grain and a bit phenolish.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation. The carbonation is very fluffy. Slight hop bitterness.
