look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured dark brown with brown highlights that had a finger worth of khaki head and left nice frothy lacing sticking to the glass. I could detect honey, rosemary, dark fruits, sweet malts, booze, and faint chocolate notes; very intresting nose. The rosemary was more apparent on the palate with some smokey character alongside dark fruit, honey, chocolate malt accents. The booze was noticeable but not overhelming. The brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation especially from lost abbey which had a sweet, earthy, slight boozy, but smokey, silky finish. It drank really good considering how hot it was and is probably one of my favorite year round brews from lost abbey.

3.98/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - dark brown with some carbonation and little to no lacing.

Smell - dark fruits, plum, fig, some chocolate. Reminds me of the smell of a Rochefort 10.

Taste - the dark fruits, figs and plums are predominate up front. Sweetens as it warms and has a boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - medium to high carbonation and full bodied.

Overall - a good beer up front. Lots of character and depth initially but does hold as it warms.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

2012 vintage poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice
A: Dark brown, opaque with a one-finger head that settles fairly quickly
S: Malty, sweet with the honey/raisin/rosemary notes mentioned on the label
T: Matches the nose. Very sweet, caramel/raisin/fig/honey notes, a bit boozey
M: Full-bodied, sweet/boozy as above
O: Not a huge fan of this. Full of flavor but off-balance with the amount of alcohol and sweetness. Perhaps fresher would help and I bought this at retail (albeit a trusted retailer) so I can't account for its entire storage history

750ml bottle on 18 April 2014

Bear with me as this is my first written review.

A- Deep red hues, mahogany up to the light. Mix of bubbles big and tight with average lacing.

S- Rasins, figs more raisins and figs. Just a dark fruit explosion.

T- The rasins, figs and honey flavor really stand out on this beer. I can't pick up on the Rosemary but I have been sitting on this beer for about a year so it may have faded. Considering the sweetness of it the carbonation dries out the finish some. Overall a sweet beer for the taste.

O- A damn nice beer. I am glad I gave it some time as I couldn't taste any alcohol at 10%. Depending on your pallet it may be too sweet, but I like the style along with hop bombs.
