4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.75 bottle with 10.0% ABV. Clear, crimson color and a medium, off-white head leaving no lacing. Sweet, complex aroma of toast, nuts, yeasts, butter, caramel, fruits, and a delicate vanilla. Taste is full of malts, spices, again vanilla, some Belgian yeasts, subtle hints of alcohol, candied fruits - complex and ravishing. Medium body, oily texture, and average carbonation. Finish is still sweet although drier, introduces chocolate, more malts, esters lose potency but also become more refined, alcohol can be felt only delicately. All things considered, this is a phenomenal beer - certainly worth recommendation.
