Wow ! Look at the size of that mocha head, as it lingers over clear dark chocolate, only to eventually deposit dense lacing on the walls of my St. Bernardus chalice. Now this is what communion chalice should look like.
Ummm vanilla and orange tripleseck followed by cherry and plumb notes singing in the nose.
This is one rich body of plumb pudding and fruity bread.
Thick lush velvet, would make George Costanza weak in the knees.
If only the alcohol was lower, I would sip this one all night with good company or a good book.

Poured from a glass into a Belgian Ale stemmed glass.
A: Dark, cloudy brown with tinges of deep red and orange. Thick head, some sediment (in bottle) can sneak out in an aggressive pour.
S: Big roasted malt body with strong notes of caramel, honey, molasses and peat. Some spicy and hoppy finish.
T: Primarily dark roasted malt body with spice and sweet on top. Big caramel notes and hints of clove and candy. Some cherry nose and a somewhat hoppy finish. Fairly boozy but very balanced considering its ABV and OG.
M: Smooth and silky, somewhat carbonated, not overly sweet or bitter. No unfortunate aftertastes. Very balanced and enjoyable to drink.
O: Another fine Belgian. Not quite as good as the Trappistes beers, specifically the Rochefort 10, but nonetheless an excellent beer. I enjoyed the malty body and tinges of cherry candy in the finish. Nice color, a bit more sediment than I was expecting (got a little in my glass, oops!).
