4.95/5  rDev +9.8%

Undoubtedly one of the best beers ever made. Such complexity, flavor, boldness, and so much togetherness; this beer ranks right there with the Westvleterns and St. Bernardus Abt. 12's of the world.

The murky brown liquid pours into the brandy snifter with a turbulant and froathy pour. An airy, lightly tanned head shows sprinkles of yeast and spices. The beer settles with a half-inch head and laced well as the beer magically disappeared. Despite the rusty and sediment rich pour, the beer has a nice appearance.

Cotton candy sweetness hits the nose with a lot of fruitiness, spiciness, and with a chocolatey, vineous hint that keeps my head spinning. The nose promises complexity immediately.

Malty richness of barley sugars, caramels, and toffee set the tone. Quickly a toasty, chocolatey flavor accompanies the malts and a rich concoction of sweetness begins to emerge. Fruitiness of berries, grapes, dates, figs, plumbs, and apples quickly give a balance and needed variety to the sweet malt taste. A light hint of barrel aged woods make a minor impact later with mild tang and mustiness on the mouth. A confectionate and complex reward to the tongue.

Initial powder-sugar textures develop quickly into a well-malted, well-rounded beverage. Full and suculant textures allow the acidic fruit notes and light hop bitterness to settle the beer and calm the sweetness. Finishes with a dry, well-attenuated, airy finish. For such sweetness, the beer leaves very little residual sweetness on the mouth.

Certainly a desert beer, but not one that relies soley on sweetness. The beer continues to develop with each successive sip and as the beer warms. Remarkably easy to drink seeing how malt dominant the beer shows. A magical beer that defies modern brewing logic.

I guess I just don't love the style. I've had it a few times and I still don't get how this is so highly rated. It's a really well made beer that's obvious, but I swear I taste mold every time I drink it. I'm glad I've tried it but no more for me.

Bottle "Best before end": 05-03-2018

Deep mahogany red body with a thick, sticky, chunky head (4.5). Boozy, yeasty, doughy smell; rich caramel; raisins: brown sugar (4.5). Rich, creamy caramel flavors with a smoothly biting alcohol and hop bitterness edge; brown sugar with moderate phenols; lingering, satisfying aftertaste (4.75). Medium-heavy body; creamy and smooth mouthfeel (4.25).

An exceptional beer with rich, sweet, sugary malt tones well-balanced with a alcohol edge.
