Poured from the bottle into my Chimay glass. Batch 001.

Appeared a dark brown color with a reddish tinge. Produced a 4 finger light brown head that dissipated leaving only a thin layer on top. TONS of sediment chunks, even though I was pretty careful pouring it.

Smelled quite interesting. Definite port-wine characteristics mixed with dark fruits and a bit of creme.

Taste was quite potent. Hit with some grapey flavors, kind of like fermented Welch's grape juice. Cherries, plums, and tobacco flavors layered throughout. Interesting taste, a bit too sweet for my palate.

Mouthfeel was pretty thick but the carbonation was appropriate, even aged for a few years.

Overall it was just OK in my book. Many other options out there for a better price but I was happy to have tried it. Points gained though for a sweet bottle and name, and a great local brewery.

Poured from 375 ml bottle into tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark ruby red almost brown with a frothy 1-2 finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Some minimal lacing.

S: Lots of fruit esters - plum, raisin, cherry, dates. Some Belgian yeast and molasses.

T: Tons of dark fruit flavors bursting out. A mix of cherry, plum, raisin, dates. There is a subtle sweetness and a bit of spice. Maybe corriander?

M: Fairly full bodied and a bit of a syrup quality but not sticky sweet.

O: A very nice quad, and surprising drinkable considering 12% ABV. This is probably my favorite of the Mystic brews.

The odd little bottle, about ten months old, poured into a tulip.

This is a beautiful looking beer. Deep reddish/brown color with a finger or so of dense foam blanket. The head lingers nicely and offsets the deep, rich color nicely. Strong red hues. Attractive, a little "murky".

The smell was sweet and fruity, lots of fruity esters. Sugary-sweet and I assume that is the Belgian candi sugar, raisin/date/fig aromas. And the alcohol is not shy even at the age of the bottle. An earthy note as well - like very ripe fruit.

I thought the flavor was BIG, but it was not overwhelming or muddled. Heavy on the date/fig flavors and the earthiness in the smell delivers in the taste. Almost wine-like character. The malt just peeks through a little - enough to support and balance out the stronger flavors going on. It is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The alcohol is certainly present,

The mouthfeel is heavy - no doubt. It's thick and lingers on the tongue, but isn't "cloying". The alcohol provides a nice tingle and offsets the heavy feel somewhat, but there's no mistake that this is a heavy brew.

Overall, thought this a very good beer. Can stand alone for leisurely sipping or pair with robust food. Not something you can drink lots of - one bottle (by itself) seems about right. I can see having this for a rustic meal - venison, root vegetables, etc. And I can easily see getting carried away with it in that setting.
