Bottle poured into a St Bernardus Goblet
A: Poured a dark brown color with a good fingers worth of off white head that slowly settled to a thin layer (a little spotty) Not as much lacing as I had hoped.
S: First thing I'm getting is a little like wine... hints of dark fruits, brown sugar, a little toast and sweet malt.. Very complex and wonder smelling.
T: Dark fruits, grapes and raisin to start.. Then there is a malty bread like flavor mix with rum... Finish is clean and sweet with a little alcohol warmth.
M: Medium bodied with a sharp carbonation that settles as it warms up.
O: Wild ride on this one.. at 10% one will do you... Smell and taste are a wonderful experience, appearance and mouthfeel lose a little points but overall you must try this beer.
Great beer for my 400th review....

11.2 in St. Bernardus Goblet
A- Unclear brown with a half finger head, lots of little particles floating around in mine.
S- Whoo, lots of raisins and figs, plum and other dark fruits that seem to have been caramelized. Strong, sweet and fruity.
T- Sugary dark fruits, the alcohol is there but you really cant taste it. Caramel malt with some biscuit notes. Every sip has a few different flavors I didn't notice before. Let this one sit out for a little while to experience all the flavors. Excellency
M- Goes down pretty easy. Lots of carbonation, has a creamy texture in your mouth. Definitely a warming sensation but at 10%, kinda expected.
O- This beer is excellent, if you have never had it, go get it.
