3.3/5 rDev -22%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5
The appearance poured into a large snifter was unique, almost black / gray. The smell was largely of alcohol and dark fruit (e.g. cherry). The taste was complex with a clear roasted quality with a bit of sweetness, fruit and alcohol overtones.
Mouthfeel was a bit thin with the alcohol coming through more than it should, making me wonder if there should be a "best consumed AFTER" date on a beer like this. The "best before" date was early April 2013, 26 months off. Yeast flavors were also surprisingly subtle for a Belgian-style beer, making me wonder if the they were still not quite finished working (i.e. if this would have been better six months from now).
Drinkability was what really got to me on this, though. The high levels of not very mellowed alcohol and sugars (and active yeast?) made me a bit queasy halfway through, and, despite having a rye ale halfway through for something cleaner, I never quite finished the glass.
