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.

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.

Dark coffee colored with red hues in it and a tan head. Fruity aroma i was getting cherry/ plum/ raisin. Same fruity start that transitions quickly to some hot alcohol notes.
The alcohol is almost drying on the tongue giving the beer a drier finish than most beers this dark. Its kinda weird but after a few sips the alcohol notes kinda dissipate and the malts come forward a little more as well as that Belgian yeast kinda flavor. I could even pick up some notes of chocolate/ coffee but its very faint. I think I would enjoy a little more intense coffee/ chocolate flavor from this beer ( a little but not a lot). There is suppose to be rosemary but I could not pick that up.
