330ml bottle (bottle design is awesome BTW). Pours dark golden brown, opaque. Head is short and brownish in color, foamy with large bubbles. Head is short lasting. Aroma of fruits malt yeast, some caramel and alcohol.
Moth feel is rich, creamy, carbonation is pretty strong, tang from alcohol. Tastes sweet then balanced by bitterness and carbonation. Taste of caramel, alcohol, some herbal, grass like notes. White wine with some sweeter caramel-chocolate notes, some fruity-citrus tastes. Goes down nicely with mellow sweetness, more bitter, roasted-chocolate notes and bitter-sour grapefruit notes. Leaves sweet after taste with hints of chocolate.
Very complex flavor profile with much development. Really fun to drink by itself. Can’t think of something to pair it with. Great strong Belgian.

Pours a hazy brown with - seriously - the most ridiculous head *ever*. The bottle hadn’t been agitated and I removed the cap gently, and it still foamed out, and *kept* foaming out for at least 30 seconds. Time enough for me to first try to sip off the overflow, then bring it to the sink, then get a glass under it in a desperate attempt to capture some of what was spewing away. Had to have lost at least 50ml - consider yourself warned! Be ready to dump this into a *large* chalice when you open it. Or maybe a bucket. _Sigh._ Where was I? Oh, yeah - persistent tan head and moderate lacing. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, Belgian yeast (faint cloves) and some alcohol heat. Taste is sweetly malty, with cherry or raisin, finishing with some lingering hops. Mouth feel is surprisingly light, making this quite drinkable. It is sweet, though, and I’m not sure I’d want more than one at a go.
