look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml served in a St Bernardus chalice
Bottled in 2010

A - Clear burnt golden body with a finger of creamy head that banks a nice collar. Speckled lacing.

S - Old fruit bread, peaches, apricots, applesauce, raisins, syrupy sweet malt, candied ginger, mint tea, spicy, oxidized bready character.

T - Odd flavors going on here, peppermint, various unknown spices, like the entire spice rack all mixed in. Belgian yeast, hefty candied malt with some toasted evergreen/herbal hops. The malt is very sweet with tangy over ripened fruit (peaches, pears, apricots) wrapped around a moderate vitamin/mineral character. Oxidized ginger bread comes to mind.

M - Dense and full bodied, low creamy carbonation, viscous feel.

I like the experimentation of this beer but there is alot going on. It's fun to drink but it's A.D.D. in nature and doesn't have much focus. There's no telling what all Sam put i this beer. And it's quite sweet. A fun beer to talk about and review.
