a: murky brown with no head or lacing, just a thin tan ring. plenty of sediment floating around as well.

s: sugar, malts, dark fruit and nail polish remover.

t: overly ripe dark fruits with a touch of yeasty bread and lots of alochol.

m: medium body with a creamy feel at first, then the alochol cuts in for a warming wipe your slate clean finish.

o: meh, dont think i will purchase another one. if the alochol were hidden better i would enjoy it more.

When poured into an Orval chalice the beer is a beautiful dark wood color with a short lived medium tan head. Not the most beautiful beer in a glass but certainly adequate. The smell is dark fruit (plum, prune, figs and a hint of vanilla). The taste follows the scent but so well integrated that it takes a bit of sipping to fully identify all that is going on in this very complex brew. This beer has wonderful carbonation and at times I thought I picked up a cola taste and the mouth feel when held on the tongue for a bit was similar to a mouthful of Coke with the fizzy tingly feeling. This is a monumental beer. I can't recall enjoying a beer more. If Westvleteren 12 is better than this then I don't want to know about it. Simple outstanding!

Looks dark brown with a big off white head. Reasonable retention.

Smells malty; spicy, raisins, cheries, dark fruits and alcohol. Caramel.

The taste is sweet, the dark fruits come out alot. The bitterness, spicyness and the alcohol balances the sweetness. A hint of smokiness perhaps. Overall a complex but balanced beer. Very good.

The beer is creamy and medium-thick with average carbonation, smooth.

Overall a great beer.

Happy hour at Brasserie Beck in DC. Poured from bottle into a snifter.

Nice amber color, two finger head that lasted quite a while.
Smells lightly of fruit, banana, bread.
Tastes amazing! Strong flavors of fruit and hop. The high alcohol content is subtle. This beer is dangerous! Sweet nectar of the gods!

Purchased 11.2 ounce bottle from the Liquor Cabinet in St. Joseph, Michigan. I had the Trappistes Rochefort #6 last year (loved that one too), so I couldn't wait for this #10.

Poured in a tall pilsner glass. Medium-hard pour resulted in a four-finger head. Beer was a dark brown color and the head lasted over five minutes.

This beer has a molasses smell. Smell wasn't overly memorable, but the taste made up for that.

The taste was absolutely amazing. Initial taste was great. Aftertaste was great. The warmer the beer got, the better it tasted. The beer was worth every penny....especially since I spent nearly $7 for the bottle.

Purchased from the Seibu department store in Ikebukuro, poured into a 378ml glass goblet. I was so excited to try this brew, and it met every expectation and went beyond. The color is a beautiful dark hue that is 99% opaque except for a brilliant burgundy rim that appears if you hold it up to a light source. The scent was deep and nose-warming, and when I took it into my mouth, immediate sensations of dark berries and cherries took over. The swallow was accompanied by a flash of heat in my cheeks and throat, evidence of the 11.3% alcohol level. However, nothing painful about it... just concocted bliss. Half way done with the bottle, I enjoyed the changing flavors as it casually warmed in the room. I might have started it off too cold, or maybe the alcohol was affecting me, but I noticed as I drank and as it got warmer, the taste improved even more. I didn't serve it very cold, just maybe 20 minutes in the fridge after I returned home. Anyway, enough of this whole sexual experience I had with this brew. If I had three thumbs, they would all be up for this wonderful drink.

vintage 2010, maybe 2009 actually. best by 2013.

pours a deep dark murky brown with inch plus of creamy head. beautiful lacing and retention. stunning.

sweet, dark fruit, raisin, fig, slight banana yeast.

sweet with some light fig and raisin. light yeast and a hint of mint in the finish. i do not see the hype on this at all.

mild carbonation with some bite on the tongue.

overall, looks great but lacks in flavor. i searched up and down for flavors and came up empty.
