Best before 2012.
Pours an almost opaque cola with garnet highlights and a foamy half inch khaki head that lingers.
Molasses, raisins, plums, dark cherries, and belgian yeast form the initial aroma. There's a buttery note and a bit of bready malt. There's slight vinous and musty character that emerges.
Belgian yeast is huge initially, along with dark fruit. Yeast esters of green apple and a vinous character dominate, eventually allowing prunes, dates, and raisins to surface. There's a bit of toasted caramel malt character and molasses sweetness. But esters really are prevalent. There's slight peppery notes at the finish. Becomes breadier and more buttery as it warms.
Body is slightly full and syrupy, with low carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.
Far more estery than I recall. Could be the age. Would prefer more dark fruit prudence and more malt character.
