3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Crum’s. Dark amber pour with a small off-white head that leaves a good bit of sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel, cola, some dark. Flavor starts out with chocolate and roasted malts, followed by raisins, allspice, and a big hit of booziness at the end. Really comes across more like a liquor drink than a beer in the finish. Would definitely have again.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Old Ivy in Vancouver. Pours a deep red, with a decent ivory head that fades to a thin layer that sticks around and little lacing. The smell is sweet, with some dark fruit and light cloves. Taste immediately smacks of cloves, raisins, and sweet sugars. Not too sweet, with a good bit of spice. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, with the spices providing a nice bite. A fantastic belgian, not as strong as the 10.5 ABV would suggest. Sneaky, but powerful.
