Poured this 2004 edition into its proper glass. It has a murky brown body which has some dark ruby tones when held up to the light. A small tan head faded to lace around the rim of the glass.
A little bit of a chocolate and mocha aroma. Since I know it's blended with Lindeman's Kriek, I want to say cherry cordials too. But I don't if I'd pick up on that in the nose or on my palate, very subtle.
Very rich/sweet malt flavor, complex. Perhaps the sweetness stems from the lambic it is blended with, or maybe it's just the dark fruit flavor from the malts (I'm a beer drinker Jim, not a sommelier!) Rummy.
Feels a bit cloying at first, but it was quickly cut up by the carbonation. Medium to heavy body.
Drinkability: this is so rich I don't think I could handle multiple offerings over the short term, but as for long term, I will definitely confer with the Three Philosophers as they are quite affordable.
