Mildly sweet malts and yeast in aroma. The flavor is caramel, candy sugar, dark fruit and not much bitterness. Somewhat subdued but pretty good still.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle at home. Pours dark brown with hints of mahogany and some red. Very light brown foam, good lacing. Aroma of dried cherries, some plum, spiciness, and light, yeasty malts. Taste profile mirrors the aroma’s, with the dried cherries accentuated. Lighter on the palate than I expected, though it’s pleasant. Nothing too special here, but pairs nicely with a chicken dinner.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad, but nothing excellent. Some standard malty and dried fruit flavors expected of the belgian style, but nothing else. Also, very weak flavor for the style, almost watered-down tasting. I’ve had much better.
