Pours a murky brown with a decent cap of light tan head that quickly disappears. Almost no lacing is left behavior be. The aroma is fruity and sweet, but think brown sugar and burnt sugar. The taste is much the same with just a little bit of spices. The body is remarkably light and drinkable with just a little bit of carbonation.

Purchased in Italy. Very dark with lots of bubbles. Can't even tell that it's 10%.

A- pours a firm cola color with ruby hues on the edges where light hits the glass. The foam literally becomes a batch of cake like frosting all over the glass. And it does not go away

S- dark raisins, candied sugar, and Belgian yeast all over. Some cinnamon and nutmeg too

T- good flavor with the dark fruit in the focus. Delicious Belgian components make this a treat.

M- great creamy and smooth flavors. Literally coates the palate with flavor

O- pretty good Belgium brew that has some good flavors. I will always grab one around Christmas time
