Ages very well. I recently drank a 2013. It was massively better than i remembered it being. I'm aging 2 more from the same year to see how they develop.

Notes from 10/15/14. Bottle date 5/2012.

A - Almost four fingers of bubbly khaki brown head. Dark, dark brown body, almost black. OK retention.

S - Belgian yeast. Raisins. Dark fruit. A little brown sugar and pepper.

T - Follows the nose but predominated by sweeter fruits. Leather and earth in the finish.

M - Low carbonation. Swells on the tongue. A little sticky.

O - I'd like to see if this mellows out even more and thickens a bit with age. Aroma is awesome but taste was a little sweet for me.
