COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now, seventeen years after we started, we’re proud to present another great addition in this ongoing series. AleSmith Decadence® 2012 is a big Belgian-style quadruple ale. A variety of Belgian malts impart notes of bread and ripe fruit with subtle hints of cloves and molasses. Its creamy mouthfeel is balanced by a rich, full-bodied finish. This rare offering is meant to be savored and will age nicely.

From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Sweet , caramelly and fruity aroma with mild malty notes and noticeable alcohol. Smooth, but too sweet for me. (2014-02-15 - Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden)

Thin tanned head. Almost clear dark ruby colored body. Rich malt nose. Fresh sourish-sweet with dark creamed caramel, tinned dark fruits, bread-crust and some fine herbal tones. Full-bodied. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. Big dark caramelly malt base. Plummy fruitiness. Rounded roastiness. Spice and cellar notes. Warming, long gently roasty-sweet ending. Really good stuff.
