2005 Vintage

A = Poured into chalice with a deep dark brown colour and thin foam head.

S = Sweet rich smell of prunes and blackcurrant with a hint of alcohol.

T = Big malt flavour. You can also taste prunes and sultanas. Slight bitter finish. So so slight. Delicious.

M = Medium bodied with a warming alcohol finish that leaves you warm and satisfied. Amazing

D = Very VERY drinkable.

(2008 bottle) Pours like a cola with a slight red tint; very minimal carbonation. Has a spicy taste that flows off the palate. The only beer that remotely resembles this one is the Delirium Noel for is spiciness.This has a fantastic lingering finish.

I had the 2009 at my Belgian tasting last night, and it was the star of the show. To those of you who are storing your 2009, I say it is at its prime right now!

Color: Like a golden maple syrup that has been heated and has started to thin and bubble.

Head: Soft tan, average linger time for this type of beer.

Aroma: Like going to my favorite candy and caramel corn store and smelling licorice nibs, milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, and roasted pecans dipped in maple sugar. In other words fantastic!

Texture: A divine coating on your tongue and the roof of your mouth, just the right amount of carbonation, chewy and delightful.

Flavor & Balance: The alcohol burn that is present in the 2010 is completely smooth in this one. The balance of flavors is superlative. Distinctive Belgian malt, rum, maple, caramel, vanilla, biscotti, milk chocolate, pecans, raisins, licorice...one delectable yummy after another!

Sustained Taste: Nice lingering of booze, maple, licorice and vanilla. Seriously, there is just no room for improvement.
