Pours a dark brownish amber with 1/2" of dense, bubbly head that has good retention. The nose has notes of caramel, yeast, spices and fruit. The taste is caramel, faint spice, apple, faint grapes, phenols, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

If you pay attention there are a lot of subtle flavors that come together in this one. It's well balanced and very drinkable.

$4 tap at Maduro last night with a bunch of BA's

appearance: served in the typical awesome St Bernardus glassware, dark plum-garnet body, light beige head with moderate lacing...nice pour from our friends at Maduro

smell: nicely spiced, clove, raisin-fig, dark sweet malts, light yeast

taste: Maybe my belgian standards are a little off but I found this to be good, but not great. I have made a mental note to try it from the bottle at some point. sweet caramel-malt, light boozy yeast presence, spiced caramel malts, clove spicyness. Enjoyable

mouthfeel: smooth and rich

drinkability: high
