4.29/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured from 11.5oz bottle into St. Bernardus goblet.
A - A dark rusty brown with a creamy laced head that dissipates quickly.
S - Wood along with the traditional toffee and dark fruit aromas. Warm spice follows, like gingerbread.
T - Lighter profile that a traditional quad. Smooth spice and malt. Alcohol is hidden well, leaving a subtle warmth.
M - Very smooth, has body without feeling heavy.
A restrained version of the style. It's smoother and gentler than you get from most beers in this category. A nice change of pace or a great way to introduce someone to a darker Belgian style beer.

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.
