My bottle has a drink by 04-03-08 date. Being it is from Europe, I'm not sure if that is April 3 or March 4. Doesn't matter either way, I guess. This one is gone.
It pours a leathery brown color with glints of red. The head needs no coaxing and small thin patches remain in my glass throughout. The first sniff is slightly sour, but that blows off soon enough to reveal an earthy, woody, smoked meat smell that is not entirely unlike red wine.
The taste is not my style. Too much wood in it for me. Certainly complex, but not in a good way in my opinion. I can see it has merits, but I'm not a big fan of what it has.
The mouthfeel is prickly and effervescent, but substantial. Reminds me too much of how soda feels in my mouth.
This is drinkable and there are hundreds of beers that I would turn down to get one of these, but there are so many others that I think are better.

Beervana. Have been looking for this for several months when I finally found it and snatched it up. Chilled it to about 60°, then poured into a tulip glass. Appearance dark brown with a bit of reddish hue, half inch of fine small bubbled head, and good lacing. Some yeast sediment which aided in dispersing carbonation. Smell is amazing. Great Belgian yeast Aroma, brown bread, dark cherries, and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is amazing. Complex, with dark fruits, cola, toasted brown bread, and grape nuts giving way to a tart cherry and dried plum, with a bit of alcohol heat, but not what you'd expect, considering the ABV. Finished sweet and rich, with a lingering raisin toast flavor that faded towards coffee and burnt sugar, in a good way. I believe that this is the best beer I have ever had, and I've had quite a few trippels and quads, but this is simply outstanding. Wish it was more readily available.
