Bottle has a date of 090615. I assume this is "best by". This one is a couple years old so I'm guessing it's got a 5 year best by date (probably bottled 2010 which sounds right).
A: Pours a deep dark reddish-brown. Good sized fluffy and fizzy tan head. Head fizzes out fast, leaving zero lacing behind. Halfway decent retention at least.
S: Rich and sweet dark fruits. Wonderful dark fruit aroma in fact. Lots of raisin and fig of course, but notable cherries as well. Maybe prunes and plums? Candied fruits abound. No alcohol sting at all.
T: Sweet and decadent dark fruits again. Loaded with them as mentioned in the aroma. I swear I even get grape in addition to what I've previously mentioned. Sweet bready malt. Kinda reminds me of poundcake. No real noticeable alcohol, maybe the slightest hint of booze on the back end. Spices in the finish, mild and well integrated.
M: Fairly heavy but not cloying. Not too viscous. Just about right really.
O: A wonderful quad, one of the best. Destroys St. Bernardus Abt 12 out of the water and gives Westy 12 a run for its money. Super sweet and fruity, one of the fruitiest (in a good way) quads I've ever had. Ages well too apparently, flavors meld nicely and it goes down so easily. Great beer.

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
