2011 vintage poured into a tulip

A- Pours very dark murky brown. Turns black in the glass. A one finger of a off tan colored head.

S- Massive caramelized dark fruits. Frigs, dates and a nice clove spicyness. A slight graininess, this reminds me of english yeast.

T- A nice bitterness at first and a surprising roasted quality. A nice caramel sweetness followed up by a huge dark fruit quality. A ton of frig and dates and raisins. A nice clove and a subtle spice to the beer. A touch a bannana and a bit of pepper. A hugely complex and smooth quad.

M- A nice rich and thick beer. Alcohol is remarkably well hidden and this beer keeps me comping back. Its complex and constantly changing. Warming on the way down.

O- A magnificent quad, I would rank it up there with the best.

Had a 2011 vintage bottle that was kept a little too cold so while I thoroughly enjoyed this beer I wish I could've had a bottle that was stored at proper temp (oh well). Dark brown, syrupy like pour with little tan head that dies quick on top of a very yeasty, citrusy and candi-sugar like aroma. Definite sweetness packed with that typical Belgian orange-like yeast strain as well as some pepper and sharp spices and touches of dark fruit (my wife detected sour fruit but can't say I picked it up). Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, a little thick and sticky, not that much though, and the taste is similiar to the nose although I do detect a sticky, syrupy licorice type sweetness. Good amount of fruits like touches of citric fruits and dark fruits (figs being number one, maybe raisins) along with great balance from sturdy malt backbone and the ABV gives off a complentary edge to the finish and helps mellow out, but not kill, the beer as it warms. Great sipper and a definite must try.
