3.99/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into a Chimay goblet.

AP: Near black in colour, but with some colourful purplish hues like a really dark eggplant. Fluffy off white and light tan head of 1" that takes a while to dwindle down to 1/4". Decent lacing when the glass is tilted.
AR: Dark fruits (raisin and fig), brown sugar, toffee, molasses.
T: Tastes like it smells, sugary sweetness that is toned down by the high ABV and yes, there is some heat on this one. Fruits have a rum soaked aspect to them.
M: Decent carbonation for a BSDA, moderate body (not too heavy), bit of a crispness on the finish though the sweetness does coat your mouth a bit.
OV: Good sweet flavours, though you can taste the booziness of this one. I think some cellaring would benefit this beer. Didn't get any spices on this which I think it needs to balance the sweetness. A solid brew, but not World class.

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.
