$6.99 @ buy rite edison nj (this thing was $15 @ a place in soho a couple of weeks ago.. and almost worth that price imo!), 04 03 09 stamped on the bottle, play the lotto with the numbers or something...
dark ruby eyes stare out from this monster trappist, the head holds fast at one finger of perfectly formed clone bubbles, the lace sticks like the pages of an old porno mag, the only light penetrating this bad boy is at the bottom of the glass where the glass is thinner, in the middle, nada luz baby. it sits there and just says "go ahead fucker".. beautiful, you could take 100 photos and they would all be this stoic beer sitting there staring at you.. it's like mt rushmore...
raisin spirits, distilled grapes, this smells more like wine than beer imo, almost like a slightly chocolate cabernet.. lovely. The alcohol isnt hiding either. as it warms more to room temp the choc is a little more prevalent, dark chocolate, perhaps chocolate covered dark cherries would be in order.. this is one to savor.. some smokehouse almonds would rule with this...
lighter than it looks in body but the flavor is powerfull. definitely a sipper to get in all that is happening here, "dry non sweet chocolate dark fruit" is the best way I can describe it... tones of raisin fade off with the carbonation that has a nice prickly sensation on the pallete, delicious. the alcohol has a nice warming effect and is very present. Considering the ABV this is very drinkable, and would be a fantastic digestif with cheese after a nice winter meal in front of the fireplace.
it aint rated this highly for nothing.. this is no poser, and honestly it is a little different than other easy to get belgians (at least around these parts). Worth it. Get it. Drink it.
