Had on draft at the Pourhouse in Exton, PA a week ago. I'm assuming it was the 2013 vintage, but there was no year notated so I can't be sure.
Heard so much about this beer that when I saw it on the tap list, I didn't hesitate to order. Served in a 12 ounce pour in a generic Belgian-style goblet. Deep dark brown color with almost no head by the time it got to me; all that remained was some thin light brown froth on top. The smell was a little faint, but I got hints of plums and raisins, with some spices and a little alcohol. Very complex taste; a lot going on like a rich German lebkuchen - some spicy coriander and cloves with candied dark fruit and nuttiness, but balanced with some roasted coffee and chocolate flavors. Mouthfeel was good; some carbonation that gave a nice smooth texture.
Really enjoyed this beer. Would love to get my hands on some older bottled vintages to see how age affects the flavors.
Serving type: on-tap
