Bottle purchased at Oliver's in Albany, NY. 2011 vintage.

Pours out a very dark brown, one of the darkest BSDA's I've ever seen. A foamy half inch head lasts almost the whole drinking session. No lacing.

This guy smells like dark fruits, Belgian yeast esters, chocolate, caramel, and currants.

The taste is very similar- this is one of the most chocolatey quads/BSDAs/whatever I've ever had- and really makes it stand out. The 3 years of aging have left no alcohol trace, although I do not know if its particularly boozy fresh. There's caramel and toffee, with wonderful chocolate and nutty flavors, the expected dark fruits- raisins, currants, and plums, with only a small amount of the typical Belgian yeast flavors. This one almost feels like a stout with the chocolate flavors. Amazing.

This one is medium bodied, not quite as thick as I would've liked, but serviceable enough anyway. There's barely any carbonation, but it works well with this one. A slow sipper, not due to the alcohol, but due to how decadent it is.

This is really up there with Rochefort 10 as the best quad I've ever had. It's certainly the most unique.
