Woohoo, just found the notes on this.
I poured this into a chalice.
The appearance was a nice golden orange to brown color with a nice one finger white foamy head that died at a decent pace and ended up leaving a decent sticky lacing in rings.
The smell was a nice sweet yet an inviting somewhat Belgian spiciness of sorts invading my nose.
The taste is sweet and spicy with an inviting yeasty breadiness surrounding the flavors. There is a nice sweet yeasty aftertaste with an iviting dry spicy sweet finish.
On the palate, this one delicately sits about a medium and has a decent carbonation running about my mouth and tongue to tell me there’s a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, I say this is a nice Belgian Strong Pale Ale as everything fits nicely for this beer.

750ml ($8.99) first time trying, very sneaky beer. High % and its so drinkable if you uncork it for yourself you’ll be feeling it pretty good by the end. taste is light and has a bit of flavor. Price is high but deff worth trying if only once

Smooth flavor and mild barley wine aroma permeates this abbey style beer. Excellent palate even with the high alcohol content. This beer is as smooth as jazz !

Backlog. Tried it bottled and on tap a number of times. Slightly too sweet for my taste. With caramel, chocolate, citrus and herbs.

I expected more from this considering what I paid for a 25.4 FL. OZ. Bottle. What is there, is expertly balanced, as the 9.4% ABV is hard to detect. Just kinda needs more of what’s there, is all.
