thanks to AKBelgianBeast for sending this my way in a recent trade. 2007 bottling.
This poured a hazy dark brown with a foamy 1 inch head.. very pretty in my san tan brewing pint glass.
It smelled of dark fruit with a nose of floral hops.
This was sweet, dark sugars, dark fruits... very large alcohol presence.. all 10% can be tasted very well. The alcohol burn isnt astringent, just hot.. dries the palate and warms the chest, but doesnt affect the drinkability at all.
Thick and heavy, for me certainly a sipper. I think this one will do nothing but get better with age.. i am glad i have a couple more to tuck away for a few years, i envision this one being spectacular with a few years on it to mellow the abv a little bit.
definitely one to seek out.
