Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 49 03:05 AROMA: sweet malty and caramely background with peppey alcohols. Some faint dried fruits (raisins and some plums). no hop aromas or other additions. APPEARANCE: deep amber color and translucent. large and dense moussy head with ivory color. average retention with some lacing. TASTE: sweet malty profile without much complexity. some bread notes and medium-low bitterness. finishes medium-dry. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: yet another average Belgian Strong Ale that faces tough competition.

A dark red with a thin layer of cream colored head but the lace sticks around is very spread out. The aroma is powerful with malt and fruity. The taste has dark cherry, wood and plum esters. There is a nice full feel with hardly any carbonation. It has a spicy after taste and a lot of warmth.
