Bottle from John’s Market.
A: Dark mahogany bordering on black. Thick creme head. Nice lacing.
N: Anise, licorice, clove, some oxidation. Touch of esters and a hint of cocoa.
T: Oxidized, but it’s not over the top. Plenty of bitterness left and there’s a moderate touch of sweetness. Going slightly sour.
M: Medium body; slightly sticky. Alcohol is well hidden.
O: Has held up pretty well, all things considered. Drinkable with a nice Belgian influence

Thanks Chris for sharing this at the annual cellar clearance...
Served in a mini-nonic pint, quick review transcribed from written notes
Dark brown with a ruby glint in the light, spotty lace around the edges, patchy surface skim. Good lasting coverage.
Weird sharp aroma, as it warms there's some vague traces of dark fruit. Tart astringent taste, tangy. Big notes of oxidation, light roast malt in the background. Must have been infected or aged too long, it's kind of gross at this point... drain pour.
