COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

11.2 oz. bottle that was a gift from my nephew Luke. Pours a hazy, somewhat muddy brown with a thin tan head. Very pleasant aroma of caramel, figs, and brown sugar. The flavor is a bit more subdued than the aroma with caramel, figs, brown sugar, Belgian yeast and a bit of alcohol heat. Mild bitterness at the finish. Very heavily carbonated which I think took away from both the flavor and the mouthfeel. Medium bodied.
