Thanks to kplynch for the trade!
Bottled October 2006.
Pours a deep deep ruby color with a white head that has just a touch of gray. Good and fluffy with good retention. Nose is of caramel dried fruit with some spice, and a bit of apple. Taste follows. Thick dark fruit, caramel, spice, licorice, some vanilla and molasses. Very sweet belgian candy sugar. A slight sour note on the finish. A bit thin in the mouthfeel department, slick in the throat. Drinkability is good, but this one is way too sweet to have more than one. Overall a great brew by allagash. I would like the mouthfeel and texture to be a little bit thicker, but they are quite good as they are. I am really impressed with their belgian style brews lately, IMO they are without a doubt one of the best belgian style breweries in the united states. Good beer.

poured into a pint style glass but a bit smaller. a dark beer. aroma is a really nutty, (and I normally don't consider things nutty) and definitely getting warm roasty woody notes as well. hint of what i'd describe as vanilla wafer. excellent smelling but taste didn't quite match up. got hints of coacoa. little to no carbonation. i'm pretty sure this was on a nitro tap

750ml C&C bottle from February 2011. Generously sent to me by Gunch. Thanks John. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 2/6/2014.
App- Dark black body, looks a bit thin but definitely a non-illuminable brown; comes with a nice fluffy 2 finger white head that makes for a nice contrast. Good retention, no lacing.
Smell- Sweet caramel, vanilla, roast malts, some dark fruits, good oak presence. No real hint of the Belgian yeast that was presumably used here.
Flavour- Caramel, roast malts, figs. Less complex than the nose. Less oak is present on the palate. Even is a bit metallic.. not enough to detract from the whole experience. Not a particularly intense or complex beer, but still tasty. No alcohol presence.
Mouthfeel- On the thin side, a bit watery. Fine carbonation. Aftertaste is a solid sweet vanilla flavour that fades away quickly. Fairly drinkable for the ABV.
Overall- Interesting take on the BSDA; unfortunately this style must not be for me. Seeing how expensive this one is makes me shake my head. I wouldn't buy this again if it was just me; though if you like BSDAs, this might be for you.
