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.

Beer cellared for IIRC 4 years.

Poured into a tulip for Game 7 Habs vs. Boston.

A hint murky with a nice tight he's that drops quickly. Great nose filled with dried fruits, burnt sugars. Body continues in the same manner with dried fruit, alcohol warmth and a fairy sweet back taste. First pour was prickly, second was soft on the tongue. No discernible hop (thankfully).

A stellar beer, hopefully for a stellar game tonight. Go Habs!!
