Nice solid strong. Brewmaster said itís the Westmalle yeast strain, so I would guess the characteristic yeast flavors carry over. I havenít had it in a long time so I canít speak for it. Nutty, and caramel-y flavors after a dark raisin aroma. Finishes fruity with pleasing dry qualities. Well done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky dark amber with a nutty brown tint. Has an aroma of raisins, cherry, dusty bread yeast and light candi sugar. The flavor is kinda dark malty with esters of plum and dusty raisin, but it quickly turns to a semi bitter finish with fruity herbal hoppiness to a semi dry ending.
