4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.4% abv.Appearance: This is a very hazy beer with a brownish tan color and a quick fading off white head. A quick swirl is needed to keep some foam on top. Lacing is minimal and very slick. Smell: Right up front there is a big raisin like fruity sweetness. This is backed up by bready yeast and malt notes.Taste / Palate: Now on the tongue the bready Belgian yeast notes hop out first. Dark fruit, raisins, plums and apples move in with sweet maltiness. In the middle there is an attempt by the hops to come out and play but the yeast notes and malt notes and now some sweet boozy notes hold out and finish strong. The body feels smooth with lots of fine carbonation. Just right for a big Belgian Ale.

Dark amber color with white short-lasting head. Bready and yeasty aroma, with malts and toasted candy. Although it is a 8,4% alcohol, taste is not alcoholic whatsoever, with some fruity and malty notes, with some spices. Aftertaste has a slighty hoppy note.
