A - Served on tap into a weisse glass. Poured a nice three finger head. Color was dark / subtle amber in the light.
S - The sweet aroma of bananas, clove, and a hint of raisin fill the nose. The smell was sweet, but not overwhelming in the glass. Great balance in the aroma that really added to the anticipation before the first taste.
T - The taste was even better than the aroma. Sweet banana, clove and caramel came together in a perfect balance. Never did the sweetness, clove or alcohol overpower each other. I would never have guessed this was 8.2%.
M - More carbonation than it appears with a medium body as expected of this style of beer. Remarkably smooth mouthfeel and a moment of fleeting bitterness gives way to a lingering sweet and smooth aftertaste.
O - The balance of this beer is really impressive. This beer has a rich taste with dark fruits, bananas and clove that all play gracefully over your palate just long enough to keep you wanting more without overstaying their welcome and overpowering you. This beer is excellent and dangerously drinkable at 8.2%.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
