V Twelve by Victory Brewing is listed as a self proclaimed Belgian Style Ale.  It is a strong quadrupel coming in at 12% ABV.  It pours into the glass a slightly cloudy amber orange with minimal head.  It smells of raisin-y malts and fruity sweetness.

On the palette this is pretty true to the class description.  This has a bold malt forward flavor.  The bitterness is minimal and despite the noticeable presence of alcohol it invites you into the next sip.  This is a beer that does justice to the style.  It is available from Victory on a rotating basis year round.
