Pours a deep amber brown and red hue. Has a 1.5 finger head which drops to a half finger and stays. Has a deep rich malty, toast and caramel aroma with hints of fruit and slight resin with a lingering slight candy smell. Flavor is a smooth malt with that toasty hint still and a slight sweetness that compliments it well. It finishes with a delightful light hops bitterness and a balanced mouth feel. Overall this is one dangerously great brew and this is what i expect out of a Belgian Ale. Good job Heretic.

22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is fairly hot, with notes of alcohol, caramel malt and a little candied sugar. Flavour brings out candied sugar and alcohol, followed by dark fruits and toffee. Quite hot, but well-balanced, finishing on notes of alcohol and sugar. Nicely balanced, though quite hot. Good stuff.

Not much of a head. Figs and dark fruit aroma. Murky brown colour with a rich Belgian ale with rich malts tasting of dark fruits and a little booze. Not bad at all
