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

Carried home by-hand, from Belgium.

I actually prefer this to the 10.

A= nice brownish-red with a bit of off-yellowed head.

S= little alcohol evident, surprising for its ABV. Nice fruity-plum-prune-raisin conglomerate.

T= exceptional flavor, complexity, balance with the same fruity plum-prune-raisin conglomerate, slight sweetness and yet profound depth.

M= possibly some ABV after-numbing but you're too busy savoring the aftertaste.

D= very drinkable depending on your ABV tolerance, and how much your stomach can take before feeling bloated.
