Pours dark mahogany, tinting purple in certain light. Four finger, massive head full of miniscule bubbles creating a blanket resting on top of the beer.
Aroma is yeasty and malty, similar to a Belgian strong ale. Bread and fruit. Very complex aroma.
Yeast is present in the taste as well. Rich and deep malt flavor. Wheat sweetness is definitely present but it's balanced by drier malts similar to oak and toast. Caramel and earthy flavors are there too. Pretty sharply carbonated. Looks, smells, and drinks like a Belgian ale and dark lager hybrid.
This is a really good beer.

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.
