Reviewed from tasting notes. The nose is not huge – plum and slight funk with traces of light chocolate. It pours brilliant garnet to chestnut with an enormous 3” light tan tinted head that leaves classic Belgian window lace. The flavor has a chocolate undertone but there is some definite prune and some othe fresh and dried fruits. Medium body and slightly above medium carbonation.

Bottle obtained from the brewery about a year and a half ago.

Dark brown pour, with a large off-white head that retained nicely and coated the glass with lace. Mild aroma of bready yeast and caramel malts. Taste was very bland up front, cardboardy malts, yeast, light herbal hop notes, no real sweetness or estery qualities that I like in the style; it was really just pretty lacking in taste, though benign and mostly non-offensive. Could've just been that the bottle was past its prime, but I don't see why a beer like this couldn't hold up a year or two in the cellar. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Pretty average overall, not very tasty, but not undrinkable.

Had to update, first bottle was infected, brewery staff replaced it with a bottle of the 2012 vintage which was much better.
