Pours dark brown with a lasting creamy head and lacing.
Nose shows chocolate, liquorice, caramel, roasted malt and some Belgian phenols. A little fruit shows through, mainly raisins. The rich and diverse malt profile is a delight.
Flavours are syrupy sweet but there's nice amount of roasted malt to counter it. Alcohol is quite noticeable but not over the top. Similar malt profile and spicy character as in the aroma.
Carbonation is pretty high, but helps cut through the sweetness.
Dangerously drinkable stuff.

I have no idea how old this bottle is - the notches on the numbers on the side of the bottle seem to line up with a 1 and a 0; could that possibly mean this is from 2010? I've had it in my DBF in the cellar for awhile, but I wouldn't have guessed any more than a year. . . .
A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. The body is the color of iced tea - murky or hazy iced tea - but when backlit it's more mahogany or even ruby. Small thin khaki-colored head on top disappears immediately. No real lacing other than some short-lived "legs" after each sip.
S: Brown bread, brown sugar and spiced apples - think those mulling spices you put in cider. Also a touch of alcohol is noted.
T: Similar to the nose, I get apple pie-type flavors: overripe apples, brown sugar and some spices (cinnamon, maybe cardamom). Some bread dough too. Alcohol is fairly well hidden on the palate, but shows up as a drying element in the aftertaste; heat is felt in the belly right away.
M: It's low in carbonation and a little watery for such a "big" style (and given the high ABV).
O: Good but not great.
