Bottle dated 21.02.16, poured into Chimay chalice. First review, to go with my 1000th Untappd.
A: Deep mahogany, fair amount of suspended yeast, very little head dissipates rapidly.
S: Rich, salty caramel. Distinct Belgian yeast
T: Dark fruit, a little bit of fennel, finishes with birch bark. Slight oxidation right in the front.
M: Smooth but sharply effervescent
O: Very complex, difficult to put my finger on the flavors. A bit heavy but does not at all lay on the tongue, the carbonation sees to that. A challenge to figure out, I can't wait for another opportunity to do just that.
