4.3/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark amber with a splash of ruby thought the center and golden glow on the edges. It had a long last huge frothy head that faded to a frothy cap that lasted to duration of the beer. Nice heavy lacing.

Smell: The alcohol does clearly show through this beer. It like that aspect but it may be too big a beer for some peoples preference. In the aroma there is also very nice toasted butterscotch, brown sugar and caramel. Finally there is a fresh homemade bread smell that lingers in the nose. mmm.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Very smooth feel as it enters the mouth. It leads with a sweet malt character that is immediately backed up with some bold alcohol that is in no way offensive or cloying, it is just making itself known. There is a brilliant balance of exotic fruits and spices layered in the super smooth silky mouthfeel. Excellent.

Drinkability: This beer is extremely easy to enjoy but it is a sipping beer. It is very big. It also very classy and would easily suit as accompaniment to a fine dinner and guests.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

4.44/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 ml brown bottle into a Chimay goblet. Bottled on Sept 18 2009 on front label. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Lighter than expected chestnut with a big dose of floaties but a prodigious 1-2 finger light beige head with decent retention and peaks of lacing.

S: Major fruity aroma here with fig, plums, red grapes, currants, bananas, and orange marmalade all combining with some mild herbal hopping to create a huge malt blast. The entire aroma experience is accentuated by further fruity yeast esters with a mild, phenolic, clove character

T: THe flavor also assaults with malt, first with dark fruits like red and purple grapes, figs, cherries, plums, and raisins, all dosed with a heavy dose of rum-infused honey. Hops provide some balancing herbal-based bitterness. Yeast esters play a big role with banana and some lightly sulfuric apricot and peach character as well. Bitterness is low -- this is a malt wallop all the way, and a good one too. Vinous without getting too grapey -- a masterful beer all-around. The alcohol is tame and in the background.

M: Silky smooth with nowhere the 12% detectable anywhere. Sumptuous feel overall with moderate carbonation to keep it from feeling too thick and viscous.

O: This was indeed a good one to put away -- wow -- huge dark fruit character with drinkability. Sumptuous and decadent but not over the top -- wonderful. I wish I had bought more.
