Purchased at Ayotte's Smokin Joe's in Hudson, NH on 7/25/08. 750 ml caged and corked bottle with a best before date of 11/09. Bottle boasts an 8% ABV.
Cork was extremely difficult to remove, had to resort to using a wine key. Cork broke in the process and the neck of the bottle chipped as well. Hoping we don't find the broken piece of glass the hard way.
Dark amber with caramel hues. Three finger bubbly/creamy head dissipates quickly, leaving a web of lace around the glass.
Smells of fig with undertones of coffee and chocolate.
Meaty fruit flavor; figs and dates with chocolate, coffee and alcohol underneath.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with the slightest hint of alcohol bite at the end.
Considering it's 10:00 am I probably shouldn't be drinking this at all, but even with it's heavy Dubbel Belgian body it goes down surprisingly well.

A: Beautiful chestnut body and head, rocky, lasting, lacing. Yes it matters!
S: Liquor like, Cointreau, is the first impression, along with lots of grass, then blend of dark malts with plenty of fruit notes: apple, plum, figs, cherry. Want more of it, still subtle as it warms.
T: Follows the smell, again with the after-dinner drink quality. In this case, savored on the ferry home. Flavorful, malty dark caramel, spice, brown sugar, cocoa, latte, and stout. Sweet, fruit liqueurs, followed by drying, slight bitterness, into a crisp, roasty finish. COMPLEX!
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus w moderate carbonation.
O: Must try. Unusual grassy and liqueur like Belgian. Recommended.
