Bottle brought by Fux to the Moeder Lambic tasting a few weeks ago. Great time gents! Thanks heaps for sharing this one man.

From a 750 into a tasting glass.
Vintage: 2010
Drunk next to a 2010 base beer.

APPEARANCE: A thick, dense, black pour produces a smaller, looser looking, dark mocha colored head that immediately disappears. Fades to a slight ring. Jet black body with no carbonation at all. A slight ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass. Thick, black tar for sure, but the head is a little lack luster at this point.

SMELL: Some brandy here, with touches of vanilla and oak. Notes of cinnamon, chilies and light vanilla as well, though the adjuncts have definitely faded. The brandy barrel is a little mute as well, meaning this is a little less impressive than the regular 2010, as well as the other barreled variants I've sampled.

TASTE: Even less adjunct than the nose had showcased. Some mild brandy, oak and vanilla up front with some chilies and cinnamon at the swallow as well. Things are there, but not very convincingly. Flavor comes out more after the swallow with a lingering finish of brandy, some vanilla, milk chocolate, chilies and spicy cinnamon. Touches of roasted malt make an appearance as well. Nice, but the barrel is rather mellow at this point and adjuncts are perhaps not as forthcoming as they once were. Still very tasty, but not bold enough to be really impressive.

PALATE: Good feel here, just like the 2010 base beer. Medium-full body, oily, with medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down fine with a slightly oily and mouth-coating finish. Solid stuff.

OVERALL: Really happy to have tried this one, though I will say that it has probably seen better days. I never had the chance to have it fresh, but at this point, the barrel is rather mellow and the adjuncts are not as forthcoming as the regular 2010 base beer right now. This is still tasty and enjoyable, but probably not as impressive as it once was. If you have one, it's probably time to do something with it, as more time will not be kind. Thanks again Fux! This was a lot of fun.
