I've been searching for this for a while and DE is right next door. I have heard much about this, and given that my "beer" of choice are Belgian quads, this shoudl be interesting.

Poured at about 60 degrees into a pint Guinness glass. Appearance is absolultely beautiful. If it weren't for the almost non-existent foam ring I'd think this was honey. Deep amber, really stunning and I've not had many stunningly beautiful beers.
Smell reminds me of wet hay. Not poetic but accurate.
T - Okay, well definitely hoppy but not bitter. In fact, I'd say it is near sweet, nearly medicinal and you definitely get the booziness, almost like a quad. Very slight back tongue bitterness after a few minutes. Yes, sip and evaluate.
M - Very smooth with very little carbonation
O - Probably advisable to have a large meal before this or share it. You could amost do shots of this beer. I'd like to try it colder.
