I stumbled upon a fresh bottle of this yesterday so I thought I'd give it a go - haven't had it in about three years but I absolutely loved it then.
It pours a muddy copper brown with a swelling off-white head that laces perfectly. Looks a lot like Westy actually.
On the nose there are dates, figs, toffee, leafy tobacco, spicy alcohol, caramel, some clove... just a nice, big smelling beer.
Smooth. Very smooth stuff. A bit of vanilla, Belgian yeast, figs, a touch of cigar smoke, plenty of caramel. Very slick, a bit cloying. Classic.
I don't know why it's been so long since I've had this. It's as terrific as I remember.
