4.5/5  rDev +18.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From the corked, caged bottle marked Batch 001. Sampled on August 12, 2013 about 8-9 months after it was released.

It pours incredibly dark to nearly black. Ruby red hues can be seen around the very edges of the bottom of the glass. Moderate, lingering cream colored head. Very opaque.

Sweetness erupts on first whiff with esters of Belgian yeast, Belgian sugar, and Belgian dark malts along with a dark fruit quality such as fig and plum. At the same time subtle.

The body is full and creamy.

The taste begins with a warming sweetness of caramel fudge and malts and dark fruits but after a moment the spicy, peppery finish takes over and lingers at the end. Sweet to sharp. I like that a lot. I guess I have to disagree with previous reviewers who rated it good to very good because I thought this was a a very fine beer.

3.64/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

4.16/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

4.13/5  rDev +8.7%

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.
