Aroma had a touch of tequila and roast malt. Flavor is cocoa dominant, with a hint of tequila aftertaste.

Vintage 2012, bought online, storage conditions unknown. Didn't know I was getting a year old bottle.

Very interesting BSDA with copious cocoa notes,rum raisins and leather and mild spice. A lot of stout like flavors delivered in a body suitable to the style. Not overly " christmasy"

Floats in the palate: smooth and elegant. Not heavy, not light. Perfect like a fine red wine.

A sophisticated beer that wows with subtlety and drinkability. I imagine that age has enhanced its nuances. Presents itself like an Old Ale that was born in Belgium.

The snow is falling hard in upstate NY, the skis are waxed, at dawn we ride.

750ml bottle, Westvleteren chalice

Very dark body – mocha head but no retention. This is an interesting beer and not quite how I remembered it – the 11% is pretty well masked. Chocolate definitely in the foreground, dark cherry, dark fruit, molasses. Very nice stuff.
