look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From 22 oz bottle dated July 14, 2011 - 7.5%.
Poured in a St Bernardus chalice.
Dark copper - mohogany...small amber head.
Aroma of chocolate malts, vanilla, slight espresso.
Significant carbonation and a soda like mouthfeel.
Flavors of rich malts, dark chocolate, sweet malts, a touch of funky/sour fruit juice. Rich and inviting, certainly less smoky than fresh but nonetheless very tasty.
I'm guessing I'll rate this fresh and give it a higher rating, but for the style and overall flavor profile, at this age, it's remarkably wonderful.
