4.43/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

33cl bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks to the MLCC for forgoing their usual government pigheadedness and getting one of the ultimates in.

Pours a rather thick, nearly opaque black, and even off a gentle pour ends up with about 1 inch of head that recedes slowly and retains a little lacing. Carbonation appears to be fairly zippy, as befits the style. Big raisiny aroma meets the nose, comingling with a massive alcoholic whoosh that goes straight to the brain. Roasted malts, hints of chocolate and coffee. Ripe plums and apples, vanilla, molasses, warm bready yeast, pepper, spices. Good God this is complex stuff, wow... brilliant.

First thing you notice, on first sip, is the booziness. Then the flavours start to happen, and they're pretty amazing. The alcoholic warmth comingles nicely with the bready malt and is comforting, then the sweeter fruity flavours start to happen: the plums and raisins and other dried fruits. Vanilla, anise, a little clove, black pepper and chocolate. Cocoa bitterness, earthy hops. So bloody complex. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light for a beer of this strength, and the carbonation is pretty zippy, which proabably explains the lighter feel to it. It slides down surprisingly easy, but you feel every sip, so you are aware of the danger. I want to see how this ages, my only complaint is that it still seems a bit hot. Exceptional brew, enough said.

After 1 year: pours with lots of vigour and carbonation, looks about the same. The aroma hits you with the vanilla more pronounced than before, and the dusty cocoa bitterness coming out more as well. The licorice is REALLY coming out in the flavour, deep and herbal. More brilliant than even half a year ago.

330 ml Bottle best before 13.08.2018

A: Pours a lovely dark brown mahogany with about an 1/8th inch tan head that quickly fades to a light lacing

S: Belgian-y yeast characteristics, but definitely not overwhelming. Enticing hints of caramel maltiness with some dark fruit and dates lingering in the background

T: Almost don't know where to begin here, Definitely still a little bit of that wonderful yeastiness, morphing quickly toward the maltier side with some dark fruits and caramelized sugar coming forward a little bit. Very well balanced, absolutely no way to tell there's any alcohol at all - impressive for 11.3%

M: What one expects from a Belgian, certainly on the thinner side when compared to the really dense beers, but well carbonated and certainly not too thin, again, well balanced.

O: Although there isn't any aspect of this beer that I would say is the best for any beer that I have ever had, it is so well balanced and continuously brings hints of new and intriguing flavors that all work so well together, for that reason this is one of the best beers I had had in recent memory.

4.85/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Cloudy brown with a beige head that sticks around all the way through. Tiny sediment squares settle on the bottom.

Alcohol's apparent on the nose, also sour cherries.

Brown sugar with a malty, faintly chocolate, fig-like, pear-ish stain. Awfully rich, even for a quad but still doesn't knock out the palette. There's a delicate burn on the finish. Leaves nothing to be desired, honestly.

Well carbonated, heavy, dense beer.
