4.63/5 rDev +33%
This is the best beer I've had all year.
a) Pours a deep red/brown, with garnet highlights. Fluffy tan head, dropping to a thin raft.
s) Big spice, fruit cake, brandy, ginger powder, oak. Smells like a perfect winter warmer. Raisins & dates, as it warms. Lovely.
t) Spice & dried fruits again. But the barrel conditioning brings in some slight tartness, citrus. Dried plums spring to mind. Similar in flavour profile to Rodenbach & Goudenband, but with less acid. A bitterness kicks in late. Magnificent
m) Well balanced. A light creaminess that counters the light tartness. Slight oily slickness.
d) Outstanding. A dark Belgian you can drink all night, and with bits of everything.

Let me find my passport. This beer transports to somewhere in Belgium where ber is bier. It reminds me of the flemish sour I sometimes drink, but a little easier to drink (but only a bit).
It is dark and clear in the glass, with no head. This particular bottle apparently was bottled in October 26, 2010. That should make it (barely) ready to drink. It isn't mellow tasting - the sour taste is in your face. It overpowers everything else, but you can tell there are other tastes underneath there somewhere.
This was a nice, unique taste treat, but I don't need to drink this again.

On tap at Monk-Brussels
A-Pours a creamy tan that sticks to the traditional Bourgongne Des Flanders wine glass. Brownish red and clear.
S-Funky sour and yeasty with a little oak smell.
T-Fruity, yeasty and sweet. Just a hint of a bitter finish.
M-Any alcohol is hidden, crisp but not overly carbonated.
D-Easy to drink and tasty.
O-A nice flavorful easy to drink beer, not overly anything.

A surprisingly crisp beer. Pours a deep red color with absolutely no head. Smell is very hard to pick out, but smells of faint plums and raisins. Smell is surprisingly crisp and light for a beer this dark. The main taste is apricots and other fruits, but water is quick to take away any lingering taste on the tongue. The effervescing also prohibits anything form staying around your mouth, but overall it is a solid beer.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a dense walnut brown body with a little light glowing at the base of the glass. There is a sticky beige head that sticks to the glass in sheets but doesn't last.
S- The soft bright almost citrus orange tartness has some wet raw oak and rhubarb notes that grow as the beer opens.
T- The blend of cola and wet wood led to a mellow tartness and some brown sugar sweetness that starts to develop as it opens. There is a touch of cherries and citrus hints to a bright tartness in the finish. A well blended brown malt and dry toffee note has some paper oxidation notes and a faint aspirin quality to follow. There is a bitterness of grapefruit pith in the finish aswell.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a touch of fizz in the finish but it is gentle.
O- This beer is bright with some nice fruity depth to it and a soft tartness but it becomes a bit too sweet as it warms and the tartness is a bit too mellow to combat that.
