Cabeza alta y duradera muy cremosa, color caramelo, sabor y aroma indescriptible, complejidad absoluta... Deliciosa..

Sour smelling and tasting, a little sweet. Ruddy brown in color. Much fizzier than I expected, with a long finish - carbonation overpowers the flavor a bit. Bitter in the back of the throat, but not overwhelmingly so.

New York City? What does anyone in NYC know about Belgian Beer? Alot, by the overall experience with this wonderfully rich and robust version. Kudos!

Enjoy this beer alot, had a very good taste, very enjoyable, highly recommend trying this out, split it between 2 other friends, so about 1 glass per person, good amount of alchohol.

This is one of the highest rated beers for a reason. Such a great taste. Stronger then your common run-of-the-mill beer weeds out the binge drinkers. This is not a chugging beer and should be enjoyed with no rush. Also, it’s slightly better on tap.

This is a smooth drinking strong ale. Wonderful aroma and flavor is nice given the 8.5% alcohol content. An enjoyable brew!

This is complex. Its fruity, but I could not quite pin down the fruit. Definitely some fig, date, plum kind of stuff going on, but I could swear I sensed some pear. Nice finish with a little fig aftertaste, but not sweet. Their is no discernible alcohol flavor in this higher gravity brew.

Dark and musky. Looks can be deceiving to the tongue. A great start, peak, and finish. Deep aroma and subtle vapors.
