Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

Bottle. Must've got a little warm, because this opened with a gusher. Fortunately, I saved most of it. A thin, fizzy head under a dark brown body. Has a deep, rich taste of molasses or brown sugar, with subtle spiciness and tart highlights. Carbonation gives it kind of a champagne-like texture. It's winey-sweet without being cloying, and I also get notes of slow charries and raisins. Pouring in the sediment from the bottom adds an impression of grape tannins. Very finely done.

Pours a rich caramelly brown from the tap. Nice rounded Belgian style, definitely getting some layers in the sweetness. Heard that someone at the bar was told this is a brown ale. Whoops! Good beer.
