Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with thick head. Not a lot of aroma. Spicy beginning. Creamy mouthfeel. This is not my favorite style and I was surprised at how drinkable this was at 10%. There is a nice meld between the hop bitterness and the booziness that belies its high abv.

APPEARANCE - dark copper color, somewhat turbid. Strong frothy head with tremendous lacing.
NOSE - extremely light Belgiany fruitiness.
FLAVOR - builds on me as it warms and my palate warms up to it. It’s subtle, hare to tell it’s 10%.

bottle from kihoskh. clear brown, offwhite to yellowish head. mild spicy slightly boozy aroma, malty, dry, nutty. flavor is malty, very round, very velvety, slightly sweet, but the very full flavor matches the alc. really well. bitterness is high, and its this kind of spicy yeasty bitterness you can find in belgian beer. dry and bitter quad, quite well done, but i think, slightly overrated at ratebeer.
