2004 poured into a Chimay glass -- a nice dark ruby hue and golden-amber at the top, with a good, small, tan head. Webby lacing disappears. Aroma of malts, fruits, breadiness, and hops. Very gentle carbonation precedes a complex mix of sweet caramel, plum raisins, biscuits, citrus, and piney hop carried in a full body. Hides the alcohol well -- goes down very smooth with sharp pine and grapefruit notes in the aftertaste that dull after a few gulps, lingering nicely.
