Pours a murky brown with a ruby tint. It has a big lightly foamy white head that leaves behind a sheet of small sticky lacing. The aroma is lightly sweet and a little yeasty. The taste is much the same. It has a lighter body and is lightly carbonated.

Poured from 330 ml into snifter.

A: Pours a medium brown with 3-4 finger fluffy off white head. Long lasting retention and plenty of lacing. Gushed all of the counter when I opened it, but smells and tastes OK.

S: Raisin, dates, dark fruits, and sweet caramel. Some Belgian yeast esters.

T: Dark fruits and cherries, candy sugar.

M: Suprisingly light body. Tons of carbonation. Subtle sweet finish.

O: Tasty brew and very easy drinking. Fairly expensive for the ABV. Think I will stick to more Belgian Strong Dark Ales.

Poured into a chalice, from a 330 ml bottle.

A- Brown body. Some amber highlight shines through. Slightly turbid. Great pillowy, meringue-esque head, with a light tan color. Rings of lacing get left behind.

S- Dark roast, caramel, chocolate covered dark fruits.

T- Caramel, booze, and just a bit of the dark fruit are picked up.

M- Medium bodied, and pretty sweet. The booze twinge keeps the beer in perspective.

O- Sweet and boozy. Very nice.
