3.58/5 rDev -6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a foil wrapped bottle into a snifter
A- pours a hazy brown with a slight reddish tint, cloudy, small off white head appears and quickly dissipates, steady stream of bubbles rise to the surface, spotty to little lacing
S- incredibly sweet smelling, malty, caramel notes, finished off with a slight alcohol tinge, a little too sweet smelling for my taste
T- wow the taste is pretty much identical to the smell, super sweet, almost like liquid caramel, like oakiness to it, slight taste of belgian yeast but its pretty much overpowered, alcohol brings up the rear with prominence, this is literally like drinking a syurp
M- very heavy body, like a syurp, thick and super chewy, carbonation is actually balanced pretty well, slight alcohol burn, pretty standard for a beer with this kind of ABV
O- im not super excited about this one, its pretty darn sweet and its like drinking caramel, super alcoholic to boot, okay to try once but i wont pick this one up again

4/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: Murky orange with a small brown ring of head.
S: Lots of dark and red fruits, plum, maybe some basic (as in, non acid) citrus, particularly orange, some grape, red wine, and a touch of alcohol in the nose.
T: Grapes, spices, plum, raisin, a whisky-like harshness, floral hops, amazing that any hop character comes through after so many years of aging.
M: Full bodied, harsh from alcohol and a touch flat.
O: Pretty good. The alcohol was a bit harsh, and the flatness as unplesant. I'd take Samael or Mephistopheles over this any time, but I'd still recommend this. Perhaps it's better fresh.
Note: Brewed in 2009 (batch 7), Imbibed Fall, 2012.
