mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
750mL bottle, courtesy of the great DHVL guys, pours a hazy dark copper amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and some toasted malt. Flavour brings out some slightly sweet toffee, burnt dry toasted malt, and some various spices. Pretty well-rounded, with some nice spicy touches and dry body. Good stuff.
