look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

2010 vintage. Pours dark brown, very little white head. Smell: dark fruit, plum, sweet Carmel, cream brûlée , some vanilla .Taste: wow, amazing. A lot like the nose, caramel, plum, some dark cherry,vanilla, perfect sweetness. Mouth feel: scary drinkable, slight creaminess, not a lot of carb, not as thick as I expected. Overall: I did this side by side with abt 10 and roch 12, and this was a clear winner. I will admit that this is the only aged bottle but wow does this live up. Doing it side by side to fresh bottles show how amazingly the beer ages. usually after 4 years a beer's flavors have blended TOO well, but this is magic. So happy to finally have opened this. The beauty of this beer lies in its world-class balance.
