Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. The cork nearly popped itself; I barely touched it. Significant gunsmoke. Cork is dated 2006.
A: Dark brown/purple with massive foamy, frothy, cream-colored head. Huge, web-like lacing. The head on this is fast to arrive and slow to leave.
S: Candied sugars, dark, soft fruit (plum, black grape, currant), fresh tobacco leaves, yeasty notes. Appetizing, definitely dark-smelling.
T: The nose tells you what you get. The sugars are more prominent in the flavors, making the plum notes taste a bit more like raisins, but not overly so. Currant and black grape flavors are on mute, yeast and tobacco dialed up a bit. Kind of disparate; I wanted the flavors to meld a bit better.
M: Silky, slick, velvety body, with a surprisingly light touch on the palate and buds.
D: One of my go-to dark Belgians, and the first one I ever sampled; however, it seems to have lost a bit of its luster as I've tried others in the style that I feel surpass it. Still darn good, though.
