A solid performer in the Belgian dark tradition that I enjoyed very much.
The classic dark pour, with a murky body and rather too frothy a head. The head was a little annoying when pouring, and the look – is as often the case with these type of beers – not very special. However, one whiff and then the first taste, soon makes up for the aesthetic disappointment. Chock-full of all the classic sweet, dark fruit flavors with the added addition of of some mixed spice and some fruit peel.
A warmth comes over you, both in the mouthfeel and on the way down. A nice sipper, enjoy in moderation for full effect.
