Aromas of ground cinnamon, toasted bread and ginger. Massive three-finger foam and a brown color under it. Flavor brings nutty/almond notes to the palate. Some maple and brown sugar on the finish. Overall, not bad at all. This is a nice Belgian brown ale. I’d give this an A rating.

Bottle. Active as soon as you pop the cap. Pours deep reddish brown, almost khaki head, some lacing dots. Nose is almost wine like, sugary, caramel. Tastes of caramel, wine like again, a little tart but not much. Really smooth a little boozy. Amazing beef.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured into a tulip....very dark reddish brown and starts with a fluffy off-white head that dissipates into a light lacing head. What a great flavorful and smooth strong ale. Rich ripe fruit, complex malts and a hint of chocolate converge for this Belgian delight. Bottle does read "best before 2-12-2013" - drank on 3-24-2014
