Fresh from the Crowler... Thanks for another kick-ass wedding present Mike!

Appearance is a dark, deep red/brown color. Head is very nice and rises quick yet retains and fades slowly. No lacing.

Loads of vanilla heat. Lots of great Belgian yeast esters. Smooth and creamy on the nose.

Much smoother than expected. Nice once warm, slightly harsh cold. Belgian flavors are done nicely and not syrup-y or sugary. Solid, nice warming heat, banana/clove isn't too outrageous. Carbonation drinks much lighter than appearance. Sweetness is solid and more dry than anything. A bit more mouthy than I'd like, but still nice.

This is a damn fine brew. Barrel has done nice things to this brew, mellow, smooth, highly drinkable, solid, recommended.
