4.11/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11oz bottle poured into oversized snifter

A: Solid head that disappeared almost immediately dark murky brown does not cling to the glass at all

S: Banana, cloves, figs, plums, some alcohol, smells almost musty like a lot of quads

T: very soft almost sherry like taste with some very heavy banana, plum, alcohol tastes surprised about the alcohol taste, nice and sweet on the tongue with maybe some tobacco on the finish

M: a little clingy on the tongue but doesn't coat, I thought this would be heavier very sugary tasting

O: I had an 08 Grand Reserva and was blown away, while this is good I think Rochefort 10 is better it's odd what one single year would do to the taste. this is a good quad but I was a little surprised with the light harshness of alcohol. Overall a very pleasant quad

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: I forgot about the sediment (I don't usually drink beers this old), so there is some sediment/yeast at the bottom of my glass, but you can't see it unless you know to hold the glass up. It is a very dark brown that comes across as pitch black. Almost no head, but a nice mocha collar in its place.
S: Toffee, Artisan Biscotti, Spiced Fruit Cakes and some nutmeg.
T: Delicious and with lots of dried fig and toffee. A great quad and all the flavors that come with it. Nuanced and full.
M: Smooth with just a tingle of gentle carbonation that comes on in a gently, breaking wave against the shore.
O: A beer to be had on special occasions but mainly for winter and on snowy nights.

2009 Vintage poured into a Westy chalice.

Spicy, fruits, a bit of jam. Creamy and smooth. Light head retention lingers as the level in my glass gets lower.
Almost couldn't believe I saw this on the shelf. 10/10. would buy again

Incredibly complex and melded together beautifully, all components- from barrel to fruit, from spice to sweetness, from vinous to malt all fit together in a seamless and decadent taste.

Its deep russet brown is ominously dark, approaching a stout-like austere. With a simmering froth constructing on top, its sultry aromas are bountiful with candied scents of plum, blackberry, raisin and cherry. Further reinforced in its sweetness, light maple and brown sugar wrap the fruit in a cake-like cocoon.

With notions of fruitcake swirling on the palate, a spicy balance introduces red wine, oak, peppercorn, and a supple fennel earthiness. Its full middle lays on the tongue with a boozed sweetness seemingly of rum cake to highlight elements of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Its long and decadent finish is slow to release. As its sweetness gently rolls off the palate, its brandy head builds and those apple influences take hold. Slight numbing warmth and wood spices give a soft dryness to the otherwise savory dessert beer.`
