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.

http://imgur.com/4SUxwGn -- Bottle. Pours hazy brown with off-white head that lasts. Smells of cinnamon, belgian yeast notes, astringency, and sweet bread. Drinks with mild alcohol and little lingering bitterness. Full bodied. Tastes of dark fruit, wood, brown sugar, biscuit, and dark bread. Lingering biscuit finish. Delicious and to style.

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)
