Listed as the 2007 version on the bottle.
Pours a black color with a nice thick tan head. The head is very loose and bubbly and the bubbles kind of sparkle and pop on top. Great lacing and retention. Smells nice and tart, kind of funky, with a kick of sweetness and roastiness. There's also a kind of earthiness to it, maybe from the hops, yeast, malts?, but it's very nice. The taste is nice. The tartness kind of overpowers the other things, but it's nice. Something is kind of powdery in it, but the alcohol is well-hidden. It's not too sour, but not too sweet either, and the roastedness is nice in the background. Like some dark, sour fruit. One to like, and it gets better once you get deeper into it. I mentioned this chalky feel, though it is still very full with no burn, but something is a bit astringent. Not bad though. I really enjoyed this, a lot to seek out, and it keeps you sipping. I would recommend this to anyone if they see it, and it may be $6 or so, but worth it if you're interested in darker Belgians or tart/sour ales.

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
