L: dark brown; hints of haze when looking through the light; no head but a thin ring of foam around the glass perimeter S: light aroma of the typical Belgian yeast; hints of grapes; possibly other dark fruit like raisins but not very much T: grapes, raisins, typical Belgian yeast esther; not overly sweet like a Tripel; tart but not like a sour; slight alcohol presence M: light to medium body; medium carbonation O: typical Belgian ale but one of the least offensive Belgians I've had profile - October 29, 2015
Not bad. A little boozy. Spice for sure.

Strong Belgian ale with a nice spiced taste. Definitely reminds of a nice winter drink. Very smooth with not much of a hint of the 10% ABV. Not the best St. Bernardus but worth a try.

I don't's pours with tons of head. Tastes like a decent ale. I think it's average

Blast of maltiness then carbonation cleaning off my palate. Very tasty!
