33cl bottle at Kulminator in Antwerp, 2005 vintage (hell it was 10 euros, why not?).
A- Pours nearly black, finger of khaki head, great retention and lacing.
S- Smells awesome. Lots of caramel, candy, raisins, and molasses. It's a very sweet aroma but isn't cloying at all. Really nice.
T- A bit of cherry sourness, probably due to the age? Soft, smooth sweetness, caramel, lots of dark fruit, finishes oaky and vinous. Tastes noticeably oxidized and stale, the sourness also just doesn't taste like it belongs here.
M- Medium-bodied, a bit of warmth at the end, alcohol is pretty invisible for being so big though.
O- Not bad overall, the aroma is still incredible, and there are a lot of good flavors in there, but this beer is certainly over the hill by now. I'm not gonna ding it too hard on the score though because I can tell how good this used to be, need to get a fresher bottle of this ASAP.
