4.22/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a schooner. I didn't get a chance to check if it had a best before date as it was a communal bottle shared among pals!
A - deep amber/red and cloudy. Small one finger head that stuck around for a while and left streaking lacing.
S - combination of bready malts and a hint of dark tangy fruit.
T - this one is definitely on the sweet, malty side but this is balanced both with a nice hop bitterness and a the same tangy fruit in the finish. Almost a raisin quality.
M - medium bodied with just the slightest hint of carbonation. A little alcohol warmth, but really less than there should be based on the alcohol percentage!
D - nice and smooth, though with a tasty, lingering tangy quality.
Brought to the beer club by a friend - definitely a tasty beer to have again!

A big, creamy, beige head slowly turns foamy as it settles and glistens gold over a clear, reddish, dark amber (SRM 15). Columns of carbonation support the head as it slowly settles to one inch, leaving thick rings of lace.
Subtle plum and candy sugar are offset by faint funkiness. Warmth brings out fresh figs.
A Unibroue tulip glass presents a well-balanced quad that oscillates from slightly sweet to slightly bitter. Dark fruits of plum and fig are followed by a hint of tart cherry. The finish is modestly long and dominated by warming alcohol.
The full body has a viscous, silky texture. Alcohol is warm. High effervescence is capped by a dry finish.
This one warms quite well, developing character along the way. It makes for a contemplative beer that proves to be quite enjoyable on a cool autumn evening before dinner. I enjoyed it with a pungent, creamy bleu “Valdbon”. The cheese brought out a sweet fruitiness, otherwise not detected.
