Sweet tasting, nice aroma. Not as heavy as most belgian style beers. Very nice flavor, light but good hops and good maltiness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very lively from the bottle. Dark brown with a pillowy head. Roasted beans, some coffee, a hint of red fruits in the distance. Towards the end some alcohol. Medium finish with caramel, moccha, coffee beans, alcohol. Less body than a Rochefort or St-Bernardus, but very enjoyable nontheless.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet yeasty aroma. Boozy flavor and aroma. Not bad but not great either. I wish the alcohol didn’t dominate the flavor, but then again it is a Belgian strong ale..
