Picked up a single from Total Wine in mid-August for $4.99. I believe it was bottled in 2010 per the notches.
Beer poured brown with a nice off white head on the initial pour.
Nose has hints of dark fruits and belgian yeasts.
Taste is dark fruits, nutmeg, slightly sweet.
Mouthfeel is near perfection, silky smooth with each sip.
Overall this is a very nice beer with 3 years on it. Not sure how it is fresh but definitely try this with some age on it!

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.
