Dark malts, citrusy tartness, prune and other dried fruit on the nose.
Pours brilliant chestnut with a 2" root beer float like fluffy, rocky off-white head. Very fine uniform bubbles provide thick lace.
Palate starts with spicy fruit cake dried fruit, banana, prune to plum, hint of caramel, with a hint of cardamom to cola. Very rich but dries out with a touch of tartness on the finish.
Very creamy medium to slightly above body with above average carbonation.

Notes from phone, May 3, 2014.

750ml mushroom corked bottle poured into Westvleteren chalice. Dark mahogony body with a finger of frothy, beige foam. Little retention on the head, but it left a nice, thick lacing.

This thing was a yeast bomb. Clove, banana, and Dubble Bubble gum. Notes of molasses and caramelized sugar, bread, perfume, and slightly vinous. Plum and other stone fruit came out as it warmed.

The flavor is fairly well balanced but overall still a bit yeast-forward. Slightly sweet malts, dark fruity esters, and spicy phenolics. Dry finish and mildly sour, but not in a good way.

Moderate carbonation. Slick with a body that is a bit thin and not able to stand up to this style of beer.

Overall this was decent, above average, but not exceptional.
