2008 Vintage.

Pours a dark burgundy color with a short lived fizzy tan head.

Scent of strong yeast and a heavy sweet plum start with cocoa, earth, spice, candi sugar, and caramel coming in as well. The pungent sweet plum aroma is very nice and complimented greatly by the yeasty and earthy characters. This is an excellent scent and stands up to any Abbey brewed Dubbel.

Taste of plums and other sweet dark fruit starts with cocoa, earth and some roasted coffee appearing shortly after. Finishes with a hint of dark fruit, some earth and yeast. This beer has a fantastic transition with the finishing flavors being quite different from the start, and the subtle flavors holding a great balance in between there.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit slick with a nice bite of carbonation; a bit oily, but still very nice.
