Found this in Seoul. If the St Bernardus's and Chimays I've had here are anything to go by this bottle won't quite be on form.

A: Darkish clear amber – light for a quad – with springs of bubbles. Creamy off-white head.

S: All the banana-like solvent you want with strong roasty malts. Some dried fruit and a bit of ground coriander seed.

T: Assertive roasty malt, dried figs/prunes, sticky sweetness, that classic banana-like airfix glue/nailvarnish/lacquer solvent flavour, marzipan, and a fair bit of alcoholic bitterness which could probably be attributed to the slight staleness of the bottle. Fruity bread pudding and later on some sherbet and cherry cough sweets in the aftertaste.

M: Smooth, frothy but Slightly sticky, which is fine by me.

O: Belgian beer does not travel well to East Asia. Possibly due to having been left out in the sun and no doubt having been tossed about in cargo. I've had it a few times before and it's been fantastic so I'm adding points in consideration of that. I no longer think Belgian dark ales are the be-all-and-end-all of beer connoisseurship, but every now and then they really hit the mark.
