This beer definitely falls within my top three favorite beers. I love the beer itself and the price is reasonable at $8 for a 750. It pours into my wide-mouth Chimay glass with a beautiful rosey color and not too much head. It smells sweet with some fruity tones. The taste is wonderful. Sweet and fruity at first and then ballanced out very nicely. Pick this one if you get a chance. Very drinkable!

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.
