Pours fairly opaque with an inch or better of tan foam. Retention is above average with a bit a lacing.
Aroma fits the beer perfectly: raisin, prunes, sugar, and a touch of heat.
Taste a bit more of the same. Raisin, prunes, and a host of other dark fruits come through nicely. Belgian candy sugar adds sweetness and complexity. Alcohol didn't start to hit until late in the drink.
Big body with more carbonation than expected but that didn't take away from the beer.
A really easy drinking quad. Bottle was only a year old but so tasty and easy to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Enjoy!
