Had on tap. Fantastic belgian strong dark ale. A little more creamy than expected, but hey, I don't hate it. Just bursting with all the standard flavors, dark fruits, raisin, cocoa, malts, hops, and lovely dark belgian spices. Feels like a belgian with brown ale and stout characteristics on certain sips. Lovely ale!

Hazy brown color with frothy beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, earthy notes, some cacao and light molasses. Taste is quite balanced. Some toasted malt, fruity yeast notes, light metallic notes on the finish. Medium body with high effervescence. Not bad but not as good as expected.

Very smooth, the alcohol is completely masked. Malty sweetness. Mid-brown color with yeast residue. Very drinkable.
