3.53/5  rDev -18.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

2007 bottle

A - started gushing when I cracked the bottle, but I moved very quickly to grab my goblet and didn't lose a drop, very dark, opaque, suspended yeast, insane creamy head (I don't think a strong wind could blow it over), incredible rentention, decent lacing

S - tons of plum (could smell it while pouring), sweet grapes, overall balance is fruity as opposed to spicy, smells pretty good, but not incredible

T - more of that plum up front (I wouldn't call it raisin or fig, a little lighter), spices add complexity, but none of them are strong enough to stand out for me, aftertaste is smooth dark chocolate, alcohol and spice

M - very full in the mouth, but carbonation keeps things "airy" if you will, alcohol is quite prominent, very warm, though smooth

D - Not the revelation I was expecting

This is just ok. The spices make it somewhat unique, but I can't say they make the beer better. This just doesn't measure up to a Rochefort 10, the Gouden Carolus quads, or St Bernardus 12. I tried this a few months ago at a tasting, and was also underwhelmed, but I thought it maybe just didn't stand out in a crowd, but even on it's own, I fail to see what is so great about it.
