Poured bottle dated 11-14-14 into Rochefort chalice.
A: Clear very dark brown to nearly black. 1 finger tan head that quickly dissipated to nothing. No lace at all, and that's in an etched beer glass.
S: Yeast, spice and grains, a little fruit. Like a good bread but not as strong. Subtle scent of dates and flowers.
T: Smooth, not sweet but definitely not bitter. A little dark fruit, but subtle. A little bitter in the finish. Peppery. Not hoppy. I can detect a little alcohol. Not very complex, but a very nice dark ale flavor. Not as sweet as a Belgian, but the flavors remind me of some of the Trappist ales, just more subtle.
M: Very drinkable. Very smooth with a light-medium body. Not as heavy as the color would imply. Mostly involves the top of the tongue. Mellow and subtle. Plenty of fizz tingle even with no lace on top.
O: I find this a very versatile ale. I could drink this for refreshment on a hot day or sip a chalice sitting next to a warm fire on a cool winters eve.
