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

2007 poured into chalice-

Pours a deep rosewood/chestnut color... playing with the ideas of being brown and of being amberish red... but really being neither. Nice big caramel head is fluffy and frothy for a while before slowly receding into a blanket of bubbles. Thick curtains of lace hang on the sides of the glass. Slight amount of sediment at the bottom of my glass. Looks great. Very enticing.

Smells of sweet wonderfulness. Dark fruits like raisin and plum... Maybe fig too... Candied apples... A hint of thick sugar or molasses. The slightest hint of some sweet liquor - like bourbon or cognac... and some chocolate in there as well. Smells like God's potpourri.

Taste falls right in line with nose... but out of order. Sweet chocolate gives way to candied/spiced apples... then dark fruits with a hint of sour cherry as it nears the back of my tongue. That lingering molasses sweetness also seems to coat your mouth so that the slight alcohol that presents on the finish is smooth and enjoyable. Finishes almost a tad dry- which of course makes you want another sip.

Nice amount of carbonation. Good medium to full body. It coats your mouth, but isn't viscous like a big stout. Goes down smooth (like San Diego - "Drink it in!!!")

If only this weren't $7 a bottle... I would consider becoming a fisherman in Belgium if it meant I could have this all the time.
If you have access to this- buy it. If not, trade for it. It is in the top 100 for a reason!

2 additional notes--
-as I drank this and it warmed a little the smell become more of spiced rum, reminding me of Captain Morgan from my high school days.
-I have been drinking this same case of the 2007 for over a year now... and so far it has continued to get better. I haven't taken notes from any other tastings, but in my opinion, it has improved. I'll try to take notes on my last 5 I got...
