On tap at the 2009 Bistro Barrel Aged fest in Hayward, reviewed 11/14/2009.
Dark brown with purple hues and a small beige head.
Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, alcohol, and spices.
Flavor is nice but not quite worth the bottle price. Caramel malt, spice, raisin, fig, and vanilla.
Alcohol well-hidden. Dry finish with medium body and a pretty average mouthfeel.
Serving type: on-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.
