Aged maredsous... best by date is 1/2013, so this is a little late to crack. I am not sure how long I've aged it for - perhaps two years in my cellar.
A - cloudy, dark bronze, opaque.
S - wonderful. pruny, dark fruit. dinstinctly belgian. hints of malt.
T - pruny, but not overwhelming. the dark fruit i would expect have mellowed out in the bottom and play nicely with the malt. I have a feeling the peppery and personality aspects of a fresh bottle have also mellowed. The finish is smooth and continues to integrate the fruit with malt extremely well. Hint of aspiriny chalkiness in the overall taste profile - not offensive.
M - carbonation is perfect.
Overall - muy deliciosio. I almost wish I had a fresh bottle to do a side by side tasting with. my presumption is the fresh bottle would be snappier, less integrated and have a teenager's personality compared with this, the mellowed 30-something that appreciates time and experience.

Poured from a stubby brown bottle into my Chimay goblet. Slightly hazy amber color with a big white bubbly head. Decent retention for a Tripel and some random bands of lacing on the glass.
Aromas is fairly good. Light fruit (apples and pears), some banana and a little black pepper.
Flavor is more of the same, a bit lacking in Belgian yeast but still tasty and light with a little honey prominent in the taste as well as the other ingredients.
Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. No hint of the 10% abv. Goes down very easy, with the honey and sweetness as mart of the mix.
A good, but not great Tripel.
