tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Deep murky sample pour with off white thin head. Nose is sweet malt... Boozy and Belgian yeast. Flavor is dark dried fruit, sweet malt and spices from the yeast. Sweet caramel comes through and makes this one pretty smooth and drinkable, after it opens.

750 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a hazed orange/amber colour with good-sized, creamy eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is sweet with lots of fruitiness, bread, wood, leather and spicy rye. Flavour has sweet plum, raisin, strawberry, brown sugar, bread, wood, peppery rye and clove. Definite alcohol presence. Big body. Impressive.
