look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving type: Bottle to snifter.

Appearance (4.5): Medium-dark brown, with off-white foam. Nice retention and lacing.

Smell (4.0): Caramel? I don't know.. but there is definitely a sweet smell to it. Maybe even a little spice.

Taste (4.0): Smooth, sweet up front, and some spicieness again, with a little bit of bitterness in the after-taste.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Just right, I think... maybe a little extra carbonation.

Overall (4.0): A solid beer, I'm ready for more!

Poured from bottle into Leffe Chalice

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a one finger tan head. The head has a very fantastic level of retention slowly fading slowly to give a wonderful level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is big and sweet. The sweet is mainly of cherry and some banana and pineapple. Mixed with the fruity aromas is a good dose of roasted malt, a light nut, as well as notes of a yeasty nature.

Taste – The taste begins on the sweeter side with flavors of cherry and plum mixed with a good brown bread flavor. As the taste advances some yeasty flavors soon come to the tongue and bring with them some flavors of banana and a light spice flavor. More toward the end of the taste, more sweet caramel and dark fruit and bready flavors come to the tongue and mix with a light alcohol flavor to leave a rather dark and sweet but balanced flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that is just below average. The medium creaminess is good as it keep the beer drinkable as well as compliments well the fruity flavors. The brew however is not so thin that the roasted and yeasty flavors are detracted from. A good solid mouthfeel.

Overall – This is a fantastic brew. It has great dark fruit flavors, a good yeasty and bready taste as well as just the right amount of warming alcohol. Definitely one to have on occasion.
