Damn good beer. Sweet dark fruits with some spices. Smooth mouth feel. Only knock would the lack of a strong nose. Delicious none the less.

From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours turbid deep chestnut with a beautiful brown-white head. Toffee nose is prevalent. Taste is sweet but muted, less candied sugar than other Belgians. Finishes smooth and clean. A solid performer.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into sniffer glass. Burgundy and opaque, fizzy carbonation, moderate fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Medium bodied and dry. A bit thin for my taste. Nose is fruity and herbal. Taste is fruity and earthy, a little syrupy and toffee-y. Tangy. Strong Belgian yeast taste.

Not my favorite. Its pretty malty and smells like an old syrup beer. This is time to try again.

Can't find a bottling date so impossible to tell how old this is. Pours an opaque dark brown with beige head. Deep, nutty, sherried aroma with hints of dark toffee, baking syrup, malts, lots of dried and preserved fruits, a hint of rhum raisins. Medium+ bodied palate with caramelly maltiness and some sweetness. Medium flavour intensity, good freshness, medium finish. A very good example of the style. Feels like this bottle is a few years old, but sadly there's no way of knowing that with no bottling date on the label.
