Bottle 2007 ed. Pours almost an opaque cloudy brown with little yeast floaties and a huge three finger, fizzy, tan head that has great retention staying for the entirety of the drink. Aromas of mangoes, passionfruit, candied dark fruits, dark chocolate, black cherries. Taste is bubby up front with some spicy alcohol, brown sugar, and cinnamon moving to sweet black cherries, dark chocolate, and finally ending with some spice and tart cherries. Completely superb.
2008 ed. Pours a clear to muddy chestnut brown that looks near black in the glass with a massive, towering, four-finger, dense, tan to brown head that has absolutely insane retention and leaves giants swathes of godly lacing. Aroma brings lots of Belgian dark fruits, red licorice, cocoa, tropical florals. Taste is rich, loaded with dark fruits, black cherries, red licorice, nice rum raisin booziness that is light and refined. Finishes with chocolate and cocoa. Enormous rich, full-bodied, complex. This and Westy 12 are truly some of the only beers I’ve had that just blow you away but how endlessly rich and complex they are but at the same time are so easy to drink. One of the best.

Pours murky dark brown with a 1/4 khaki head that quickly fades to a thin ring on top and leaves faint spotty lace.
Smell is of prunes, raisins, caramel, roasted malt and just a hint of chocolate.
Taste is of dark malt, molasses and dark fruit.
Texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.
Another solid Belgian quad that is malt forward with caramel and raisin accents.

4.36/5 rDev 0%

Pours an opaque black with minimal tan head that lingers as a ring of foam.
Plums, raisins, sweet molasses, and a touch of leather form the aroma.
Alcohol, raisins, nutty, toasted malt and light roast form the initial flavor. There's a vinous note at the finish that counters the malt sweetness well. Light cardboard oxidation dries things out in the aftertaste.
Body is fairly full, with a hint of carbonation and warming alcohol lingering.
Very complex brew. All is fairly balanced, between esters, oxidation, and malt sweetness.
Serving type: on-tap
