2011 Vintage, cellar temp, Bought at Green Jug in Woodland Hills, $6.99

A- Solid 1 finger head with tan, mocha color. Dissipated quickly with a small amount of carbonation

S- Candied, boozy dark fruits. Molasses

T- Dry candied fruit, prune, molasses, roasted malt backbone, fits the style and impresses on every sip. Not too sweet, nice dry finish. alcohol is smooth and hidden well. Some reviewers are noting a red berry flavor but Im not getting that. Maybe that comes with age.

Really wanted to age this for 3 or more years but also wanted to know what it tastes like only a year old. Was surprised to see this at the store and swooped it up immediately knowing I'd seen BA reviewers talking about it. Especially surprised by the price point. Will definitely have again.

The bottle being reviewed is a 2010 vintage.)

A - Pours a very dark ruby color that looks almost rasin brown in color, tan lacing is thick and creamy and carbonation is gentle and steady along the sides of the glass. Very dense one fingered head when poured.

S - Dark fruit, figs, prunes, raisins, mild chocolate and spices.

T - Belgian choclate and spice, yeast, prunes, figs, plumbs, lightly candied, and slightly boozy. Light candied dark fruit leaves a pleasant and lingering coating in the mouth.

M - Creamy, smooth medium body, and lightly sticky.

O - This beer is quite worthy of the attention it's received, wish I had additional bottles of this beer.

Bottle poured into a chimay goblet, bottle stated with the year 2011

A- pours deep dark brown color, thick 2in finger of khaki color head... diminishes to a thin layer just resting over the beer. Pleasant sticky lacing all the way down my beer

S- smells of dark ripe fruit, a ting of chocolate and a kick of spicey booze in back

T- raspberry tart foward is what I get. Like a raspberry jelly, sweet and tart. Followed by a spicey ting all the way to a nice bitter end... but at that bitter end is a never ending raspberry tartness that really sets this Belgium off

M- sweet, nicely carbonated with a nice bitter end

O- I love belgium's, and that means Belgium's anything. This ale has definitely opened a new door way for me and the path I shall judge every Belgium I come across... this beer is really a piece of art

Deep brown colour, a little auburn shine. Small head. Aroma is sweet and spicey, brown sugar, dark fruits, sweet malts. Taste is wow. Some sweet cherries in the beginning. Sweet liquorice. Finish is the least sweet, perhaps some bitterness. Quite heavy carbonation, no alcohol flavour. Sticky, but smooth mouthfeel. Heavy body. What a beer! So much flavour going on in there, although I think the liquorice is a bit to predominant.
