2007 vintage poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A very dark pour on this beer, nearly opaque. Deep brown, nearly black with a good one finger of quickly receding head with excellent lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.
The smell of this beer reminds me more of some of the strong ales/barleywines I've had in the past. Heavy malt overtone with associated notes of raisin-like fruits underneath.
Really a lovely mouthfeel. Just viscous enough to remind you that its a beast of a beer but smooth enough to make for a pleasurable drinking experience. Good, consistent carbonation as well.
I am immediately impressed by the malty goodness of the brew. This bready flavor melds extremely well with the associated complementary sweet notes of caramel and maybe banana. There is a not entirely unpleasant booziness that this beer finishes with.
Wouldn't want to drink more than one of these at a time, though the drinkability of this beer is consistent with the style.
