4.4/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Going into my first tasting of it, this baby had more hype than LeBron James did on draft (draught?) night.

Poured from a bottle bought in Paris into a snifter (did not have a goblet on hand :-/).

Paired with Roquefort cheese (thought it was fitting).

A - Poured pitch-black with a high khaki head. Looks damn impressive behind the golden rim and writing of my "Gauloise" stemmed snifter. Head leaves some lacing, but not as much as one would expect.

S - Smells like a bowl of fresh berries that have been left out to ferment with some sugar.

T - Order of flavors that I detected: Caramel. Cherries. Roasted malts. Rum. It opens with a smooth, candied sweetness that fleets into a bubbly bitterness. Does not disappoint, despite the hype. I'd prefer it to be less sweet, but that's just me being nitpicky. Definitely not TOO sweet. The strong alcohol taste lingers, but not too much for a beer of its alcohol content. I've definitely had some that finish off with a taste of death. This one is pleasantly strong. Reminds you that you're drinking something that gets you drunk.

M - Moderately bubbly. Very smooth. The feeling on the back of your throat as it goes down is sort of like a diluted rum (in that it's smooth, but invokes a slight burning sensation - but obviously less so than an 80-proof rum does).

O - I just drank a bland lager before this (Fischer). It's a little bit like watching Kanye West open for Bob Dylan. Or rather, it's more like when you see a beautiful woman with real womanly curves and distinctive, though unusual characteristics, who reminds you what is lacking in our prepackaged culture. Immense depth to this beer. I definitely understand why this babe has such a rep. Not a beer that I would drink every time I get off work or finish a long day of school, but definitely one to savor.

It's strong though. I'm kinda drunk now.
