A- pours a ruby red tinted brown, head holds a very long time, and has that pretty Belgian lacing. Nice. Head color was a bit poopy.
8/11- pours dark brown with an off white head, that went away quickly, ok lacing.
S- smells of sulfur, solvents, dark fruit, and alcohol. super complex but the sulfer overwhelms.
8/11- smells fantastic, bread, pepper, spice, dark fruit, raisns, zero alcohol and no off flavors.
T- damn that is good. Dark fruit fig, plumb and burnt carmel, very good.
8/11- sugar raisn, bread, coke, chocolate, with a little funk. really nice. super duper complex.
M- great level of carbonation and an even coat on the mouth, very nice and refreshing, wish I had some good french food with this one.
8/11- warming, great carbonation iwth a nice creaminess, spot on.
D- This is a great beer, not in my top 20 but in the top 100 for sure. Aged it for about 9 months as well so the alcohol burn was not there at all. Pretty darn good.
8/11- World Classic, this tasted better the second time, (a years more worth off experience under the belt too). Is insanely drinkable, and as it warms it gets even better, no solevent flavors the second time around, this is now a top 10 beer for me :)

4.35/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
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.
