    341ml bottle poured into a tulip glass around 10 – 12

    This brew pours a dark toned robe with a reddish hue topped by a thin tanned head showing an oily lacing. The nose offers enjoyable notes of dark chocolate paired with orange and hazelnuts. The taste is strangely fruity yet giving bitter dark chocolate notes which I enjoyed since there seemed to be a nice balance between the bitter and the sweet. The element breaking that bond is the alcohol which wraps the tongue in a bothering oily blanket. The oily feeling transcends in the overall feel of the brew but lets it finish dry even so. This product surprises, being nothing you’d expect from Belgian strong ales, and would totally be drinkable if it wasn’t for the alcohol standing out too much. I found it interesting but a bit on the flat side and not so good overall.
