look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
.33L bottle served in a Belgian snifter. BB dated 28 Jan. 2015 - but i didn't want to wait any longer. This was my favorite beer for a while, during and following a visit to Belgium. I haven't had it for a few years except one small tasting, so let's see how it holds up.
Appearance: dark brown with a variable density light brown head. Good retention and lacing. Some sediment remained in the bottle even after extracting every last drop of liquid.
Smell: Dark bread with a load of raisins, dates, ripe bananas and generic dried dark fruits. Hints of pears, dried plums and spices. Light alcohol esters.
Taste: Similar to aroma profile but stronger, with more plum, and less sweet. This 7% ale drinks like 3-4%. Rich, bitter-sweet (leaning clearly towards bitter), and lasting flavor. Bordering 4.5
Feel: Smooth, medium-full body; medium carbonation that seems just right.
Overall: Excellent! World class for style. Unfortunately not cheap in the U.S. A great sipper: engaging, flavorful, interesting and easy to drink. The look, smell, flavor and feel all seem just right for each other. Highly recommended!
Serving type: bottle
