4.4/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: center-poured the whole bottle (with a little agitating swirl to get the yeast from the bottom) into a huge stange-style glass... yielded a deep amber body with a huge head of tan foam that settled quickly into a more manageable size, but never completely went away. Some lacing.
S: fruity malts (fig, very ripe banana) and yeasts
T: wheat cereal and again, like the nose, super-ripe banana, fig; some spice, like you'd taste in Christmas/Thanksgiving meals - clove, coriander, allspice; hints of dry cocoa and vanilla extract
M: super creamy and smooth; carbonation felt more subtle than it looked - extremely easy-drinking
O: Wow. This was impressive. I could drink this all night. Delicious, so creamy smooth on the palate... A real treat. So glad I tried one - a must have for BA's, regardless of style preferences.

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.
