Drank from a Chimay chalice with my beer buddies, Anthony, Andrew and Joel

A - Pours a midnight black with no light. The head is one fingered and reduces to a film.

S - Aromas of Bourbon, toasted poppy seeds raisins and current with a little booze.

T - Plenty of vanilla, oak and raisins up front, fruit cake comes through on the mid palate with dark fruit and raisins on the back palate, before the balanced bourbon vapors kick in for a lingering finish. Excellent

M - Full body with medium carbonation, a very creamy feel and everything is in harmony.

O - This is a very well constructed brew. The bourbon aspect is introduced with balance and there are still a lot of other flavours on offer. The creaminess is truly impressive. I could drink this beer as a night cap constantly.
