Poured from a 330 mL bottle into a Chimay goblet. Bottled 8/26/09, so this puppy has nearly a year of age on it
A- pours a dark brown, near black, with a 2 finger light mocha colored head. Head fades rather quickly and laces gorgeously.
S- very sweet malt smell with a nice bit of that beautiful alcoholic smell you like once in awhile. I'm actually getting a slight hint of -- dare I say -- banana bread in there too. Quite interesting and complex.
T- heaven. Pure, unadulterated heaven. Its so mild, yet so flavorful...hints of alcohol shoot through your tongue, but they're not overwhelming at all. There is a good bit of sweetness, but as I mentioned...its not overwhelming. Very malty as well. Beautiful
M- feel is wonderful...body is upper medium on the spectrum, and mine is heavily carbonated. It almost feels like you're drinking a soda...without any of the nasty preservatives and artificial sweeteners
D- insanely drinkable. The alcohol doesn't smack you upside the head at all, though I wouldn't want to pound these back for the hell of it. Just tastes so amazing. Perfect beer to celebrate my 24th birthday and 100th review with.
