Review from tasting yesterday.
750mL belgian bottle snatched from the Warren Store. Definitely bottled that week, i just barely was able to extricate the cork as it had not even taken shape yet. The newness of the cork was an indicator of what was to come...

A. Jet black, the abyss.
S. Coffee and roastiness. Huge dark fruit character, between prunes and raisins. Not particularly complex, but American nonetheless for its sheer boldness of character. No maple on the nose. I fear this beer is much to young at the moment.
T. Fear confirmed! The alcohol is huge on the palate tasting every bit of 10.1% ABV and solventy. A very strong taste of Crystal 120. Much dark fruit and roast. I could not detect any maple though my compatriots in the tasting thought they could taste something maple-y. The second bottle will be cellared for a few months to smooth the alcohol.
M. A nice full mouthfeel. The carbonation could chill out a bit, but that's a personal note.
D. It worked as a digestif with cinnamon ice cream. A mellowing of the alcohol will help dramatically. I hope to review the second bottle and give a report back on the changes.
