A - pours a deep opaque chocolate brown. thick tan foam on top. Flood retention. Leaves streaks of lacing on the glass.

S - complex aroma. Clove, cinnimon and coriander spice notes are first noticed. Lots of dried dark fruit in the form of figs, dates, raisins and cherries. Hints of cocoa as well as black pepper come through as the beer warms.

T - Flavors of dark bread and a touch of cola like sweetness up front. Dried fruit notes enter mid palate along with a hint of alcohol which intertwine nicely with peppery spice flavors. There is a vauge woody note which seems to give the beer a more mellow character. Finish is long and a touch boozey with fruit and spice notes are left lingering.

M - medium bodied. Creamy feel with a slightly slick texture. Medium carb keeps this in balance nicely.

O - a very striking Belgian ale. De struise really hit the nail on the head with this one. While the flavors are deep and complex they play off each other well with no one flavor taking dominance. A truly fantastic beer.

Presentation: 11.2 oz brown pop top, nice label, 2010 vintage...poured into my Chimay chalice at near room temp

Appearance: Dark brown beer, somewhat murky, though a bit brighter around the edges. Tried to keep the sediment out entirely, but there's quite a bit at the bottom of the bottle. Dark tan cap fades a bit too quickly.

Smell: Caramel, raisins, light molasses, dark fruit, a rich hint of booze, bit of toasted bread. This is listed as a 'spiced ale', but there's not a ton of spice in the aroma (maybe a ghostly hint of coriander?).

Taste: Complex, but it's hard to pick out specifics. There's a wonderful dark fruitiness, perhaps plums and raisins mixed together? Some toasty bread flavors, and a hint of dusty chocolate. Perhaps just a hint of coriander? A faint woodiness, though this is not aged in oak. A firm, if somewhat restrained bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Heavenly. Rich, yet light, fluffy, yet smooth. Soft and supple. Wow.

Overall: Overall, this is a delicious beer, at two years of age. Complex and delicious, but at $5-6 a bottle, I would likely only pick up a couple of these a year to lay down.

2010 bottle at home. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin light tan head. The aroma is superb with fruit and nut chocolate, alcohol and just a little raspberry vinegar. A lovely chewy mouth-feel with flavours of rich plums, dried fruits and toffee, caramel and fruit and nut chocolate again. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. A little dry to finish with a peppery linger and a warming alcohol hum. Mild bitterness and subtle sourness are superbly balanced overall. Just great!
