Enjoyed this 11.2oz stubby bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark, slightly hazy, amber hue with a huge, fizzy, white head that lasts forever and slowly dissipates down the side of the glass ending in a huge lace.

S: Strong dark fruit aroma with a Belgian yeast background.

T: Smooth slightly sweet and tart with a dark fruit flavor mixed with some caramel on the dry sweet side.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Excellent Belgian dark ale.

Appearance: Dark, brown-red ruby color. Very small head of light foam, lovely tracing but little staying power.

Smell: Wood, earth, sweetgrass, malts.

Taste: Much lighter than I would have expected. Cereals, cocoa, spice, light smoke.

Mouthfeel: Light, gentle heat from the alcohol, clean.

Overall: Another hit from this brewery. the Belgians know what they are doing. I can see pairing this with cured meats, heavy cheeses, pears, and blackberries. A lovely thing.
