Poured from a 330ml bottle with a date code of 280415, probably best before April 28th, 2015.

Very, very dark ruby with minimal beige head.  A little murky with some sediment even though I tried to decant it carefully.

Smells wonderful.  Sweet and rich with a bit of an alcohol bite.  Mostly dark fruit richness.

Tastes sweet and complex.  Some mineral character makes it almost seem salty.  Not really as yeasty as I'd hoped.  Alcohol is fairly evident.  Just a little raw, maybe this needed to sit longer.

Medium-low viscosity with very nice carbonation.  Could have stood to be a bit thicker.

A fine beer but I find that I still prefer St Bernardus Abt 12.  I'll probably have to try one of these with more age on it, though.  If I do I'll update the review.

Bottled January 2010, I don't have a Rochefort glass-Chimay will have to do.

Pours deep murky brown with a small off white head that doesn't stick around for long.

The aroma on this beer is simply incredible. The dark fruits really dominate, figs, raisins, grapes, and dates. The there's also hints of toffee, butterscotch, brandy and some of Belgium's finest yeast.

Wow. And more wow. Tastes like an orgy of dark fruits all soaked in warm booziness.

This beer is like an old friend, we catch up every 6 months or so and enjoy each others company for while. I keep forgetting how delicious it is. Probably should be crowned King of Belgium.

Pours dark brown with red highlights and a light mocha head which dissipated quickly.

Smells of yeast, coriander, and booze.

Taste is of sweet and roasted malts, bitter spice, alcohol, very complex, and strangely winey.

Feels creamy from the tiny bubbles, and a little hot from the alcohol.

I was expecting this to be a little smoother, yet I still enjoyed the beer immensely.

DOA

A - This beer pours a very dark brown color. There is a big fluffy 3-finger light tan head resting on top. The head has good retention, and it leaves a nice thick sheet of lace behind on the glass.

S - The nose has a strong dark fruit presence. I am getting plum, fig, raisin, red apple, and red grapes. There are also some aromas of belgian yeast, brown sugar, and some milk chocolate. The alcohol isn't even noticeable to me at all, which is really surprising.

T - The taste starts off with some bready malt and a good amount of the dark fruit flavors that were mentioned in nose. There is some chocolate flavor, as well as a little bit of brown sugar. There is some alcohol presence, but very minimal. The finish leaves some lingering dark fruit sweetness and maltiness, as well as a little bit of booziness.

M - This has a body that is on the heavier side of medium and nice smooth carbonation. This beer goes down easy, and it has an extremely smooth feel to it. There is a good amount of sweetness that never gets cloying. Also, there is a little bit of bitterness to balance it out. Some boozy warmth is present on the back end.

O - This has awesome drinkability. It has great flavor and a super smooth mouthfeel. Overall, I think is a great beer, and it definitely lived up to the hype. I really can't wait to pick some of these up for aging, because I really think a year on this would make it even more incredible. I recommend picking this one up for sure. I will be buying more.
