Pours a cloudy, hazy brown cherry color with ruby tones in the light. The cafe-latte colored head is monstrous and mesmerizing, and it lingers for the whole experience, buoyed by a relentless stream of bubbles. The smell is classic Belgian, yeasty and and inviting, and so is the taste. Dark fruit, sugar, alcohol and caramel. There’s an undeniable long bitter finish that is not unpleasant. The fruit and alcohol get bolder as the beer warms. Not much else needs to be said about this beer. It is a fantastic Belgian on the darker side, made for savoring and sipping though the taste begs that it be consumed faster.
