look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: This poured a translucent dark mahogany with some light tan head.
S: It smelled like rick dark fruits (plumb, raisin, cherry) and brown sugar and molasses, with a bit of oak and bourbon.
T: It tasted like brown sugar and molasses and powdered sugar, with plumb and dark cherry and raisin, as well as earthy chocolate and creamy yeast. It had a sweet and mellow aftertaste.
M: It was thick and creamy with smooth carbonation.
D: This was absolutely fantastic with tons of complexity and rich flavors. It had amazing body too, and hid the alcohol like crazy, so it was infinitely easy to drink. Reminiscent of Van De Keizer (blue), which is one of my favorite dark Belgian ales ever. This could maybe improve with age, but I already love it fresh.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep dark chocolate. ½ finger of bone white head that held together with moderate retention and lacing.

S - Sweet raisins, prunes, brown sugar, hint of bready malt.

T - Chocolate covered raisins, brown sugar, caramel, dried pears. A gentle boozy warmth balances the sweetness perfectly. Brioche bread bridges the flavors throughout the profile.

M - Impossibly smooth. Touch of alcohol tingle in the finish, but in an enjoyable way.

D - Does a great job of hiding the 10% abv. It's smoothness and great flavor keep you coming back till it's gone.
