An old corked & caged 750 from my cellar, probably 2010 vintage. Cork broke off cleanly and I needed a corkscrew to remove it - first time thats happened to me on any beer. Poured into a Jackie O's tulip.
A: Murky, dark brown/prune color, with ample light khaki head and some decent lacing. Good carbonation visible, which makes me happy considering this is a Lost Abbey.
S: Candy sugar, Belgian yeast and dark fruit are prominent...apple skins, ample malt breadiness, vinous notes...grapes, raisins...faint spices.
T: Dark fruit & apples, caramel, bready malts, raisins, spices...tart fruitiness (black cherry?) and grapes, with a definite wine characteristic. Still some alcohol burn on this one, kind of surprised at that after so long in the bottle.
MF: Creamy, moderate body with a soft fluffy mouth that comes from the bottle conditioning. Sticky finish, and a bit dry...maybe from the alcohol.
O: Its good, probably a better beer than I scored it, but it didn't really do it for me. The flavor profile was pretty intense still, and I think St. Bernardus 12 is a better offering.

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.
