imageVery dark and wine- like, with hints of ripe plums and berries/sweet cherries, which contributes in a fitting sweet way. The colour is ruby. The sweetness comes out even more in the taste, swept in a mature and woody oak/leather-cape. Rich in taste and fullbodied, with quite some «heat» from the ABV.

The smell of figs. Also features of leather and caramel. Midway through, there is a sharp sting with butter-like hint underneath. The colour is a very nice dark brown and carbonization absolutely splendid. A very mature belgian, quite unlike anything I’ve been familiar with up until now. Spices and nuts also becomes visible before the bitterness sets in. I picture this beer to go very well with a cheese, such as Manchego.
