4.28/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Pours a clear dark amber with a towering few of inches of thick off-white head. Small, lively bubbles of carbonation mean it takes some time to fall away. A good looking brew.

S - Pear drops, medicinal phenols, peach, plum, sweet wine, vinous notes at the back. There is quite a lot in there without the aroma being particularly bold. Good nonetheless.

T - The start is sweet stone fruits with caramel joining in the middle. Medicinal phenols and a bit of alcohol heat pick up towards the end. The warming booze stays around in the aftertaste along with some breadiness and herbal hops/drying vinous flavours in the background. This is a young example so the alcohol may well even out if cellared, although to be clear it doesn't taste near its 10% ABV.

M - Persistent, tingling carbonation keeps the body feeling medium before finally fading towards the end of the drink. This allows a more creamy presence to evolve. A refined experience.

D - I really couldn't put this down once I started drinking it, even with the boozy element making itself known in the taste. I think the standard version is superior, but this is an exquisite beer.

3.9/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

33cl Bottle: BBD 16th Jun 16. Poured into a La Chouffe tulip at home on 3rd Dec 13.

Looked fine: dull dark amber/mid-reddy-brown. The head was a full foam covering of off-white bubbles.

The nose leads with malty molasses: a strong treacle taste comes along once the beer got to my mouth. This is sweet from the start with the alcohol and bitterness arriving later on the palate: there is also a spicy and yeasty feel to the flavours and smell.

I like sweet malty brews and this fits nicely into my style.
