According to the bottle I should have another year or so to get around to drinking it.
A: Dark amber with a good amount of off-white head, half inch or so. Definitely a good amount of carbonation in the bottle. Lacing all the way down the side of the glass.
S: Plums and a bit of spice, mellowing out with some honey/floral sweetness as the beer warms up.
T: Sharp and warming from the alcohol, spicy yeast, more fruit, and a good body to balance it out. Really great balance of flavors, and even though the alcohol is higher here, I prefer this to a dry quad.
M: Smooth and heavy without being oily, very little carbonation.
O: Impressive. Glad to have stumbled upon a bottle of this one.

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.
