Bottle 9/27/11 drank 3/17/14.
Pours a deep ruby brown with creamy head and lacing. Looks like a dark lager.
Strong, not overpowering, aroma of smokiness(who would a thought!?). Sweet maltiness, light smoked fruit woods.
Almost no residual sweetness compared to the relatively sweet aroma. The smoke masks most of the Belgian cues but works extremely well. I'm immediately reminded of Smoked Gouda. That slightly smokey creaminess, earthy flavors.
Overall well done but not the best.

Corked and caged bottled on 9/28/11 and drunk on 12/6/13.
Pours with a slight head and a clouded ruby color. Even after 2 years, it still smells like a firepit, in a wonderful kind of way.
Time has done this beer a great deal of good, and it is nowhere near as one-dimensional as it was when I first had it. The taste is quite malty, with a touch of peated scotch. It ends dry.
Overall a nice example of the style.
