COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian style Strong Dark Ale has a tawny brown color and aromas of banana and spice that dominate the initial bouquet of the beer. Lean malt flavors blend perfectly with fruit driven characteristics created by the classic Belgian yeast which fermented this ale. The alcohol content is deceptively smooth just like its sister beer Damnation. Brewed just once a year for a release in January.

Zakoon (483) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2015
375ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pour dark deep amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is caramel, plums, raisins, dates, vanilla and brown sugar. Flavour is not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Full bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation. Finish is long, medium sweet with dark dried fruits.
