4+ year vintage bottle. Not sure of the exact date. Served at cellar temperature. Poured from 750mL bottle into a Trappistes Rochefort chalice. Beer was a clear, reddish-amber color, with a very thin, faint head. Light lacing and low carbonation.
Aroma was sweet rum, raisins, dates and grapes. Lots of sugar. Smells great.
Taste was caramel, raisins, bourbon, oak and dates. Not bad, but a tad thin. Probably aged a little too long.
Good drinkability and very enjoyable. I had this one down in the cellar and just forgot about it. I was digging around looking for some treats to enjoy the week before GABF and found this little treasure. Ages well and is a great interpretation on the style.

4.4/5 rDev +8.1%

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
