4.01/5 rDev -10.3%
330ml bottle from Platinum. BB 6/16
A - dark brown, one finger head.
S - dried fruits, brown sugar. Booze as it warms.
T - sweet, brown sugar, sherry. Alcohol and christmas cake to the fore as it warms, takes over. But... almost as if it is watered down...
M - light carbonated, light to medium bodied.
O - not as good as I thought it would be.... Almost a tad watery for some reason, and much lighter flavours than I imagined. I will re-visit at some point. Very very strange for a world class brew.

Dark reddish brown pour with loose white head. Complex belgian beer fruit aromas (ripe sugarey red fruits, cherry, raspberries, blackberries), alcohol, chocolate and a bit of yeastiness. Taste is quite boozy and fruity but very well balanced. Beautiful mouthfeel no wateriness here.

Poured into tulip glass with 4 finger head
a: It pours very dark, but when held to the light you can see through it a bit.
s: Fruity and bread-y. Plums and banana are prominent. Maybe some coriander as well. I love it.
t: Wow, it is quite complex. At first there was so much going on I couldn't figure out what part this beer was trying to show off. It got better with each sip, as I discovered new layers of flavors as it warmed. It is not very bitter, and only a bit sweet.
m: Not a session beer, but not too heavy. I could see drinking this fairly quickly without it being overwhelming.
o: Fantastic. This is the first beer I've had that I truly feel is perfectly balanced. Highly recommended to anyone who likes beer. I'll definitely treat myself to this again.
