Finally picked this beer up today. Vintage 2011. Oddly enough I have never had this one before, so when the beer guy at Binny's suggested it, I knew I had to get it. Have heard that this needs a bit of age, but Poured into my De Struise glass. Has a large billowy head which recedes to a quarter centimeter film on the top of the beer. Aroma is very strong. Very heavy with dark fruits and currants, with a little bit of light perhaps cidery aroma. Theres a ton going on on the palate. Dark dried cherry, currants, and prune come to mind with a bit of dry coco. Alcohol is a bit more overbearing than I would have hoped. Could definitely afford to mellow for a few years. Have an 08 that I can't wait to open after this. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carb. Smooth mouthfeel. I really like this beer and would love to get more and age it for a while and see where it goes.

2011 bottle poured into a snifter

A-pours a deep dark plum with a tan 3 finger head that settles to a finger. Looks great in the glass

S-smells of spices and dark fruits, very appealing.

T- more dark fruits and a little toast. Spices are subdued. Very well balanced. Raisins and plums come through the most.

M- Very smooth really, slightly carbonated, medium feel, fits the beer nicely.

O- Very nice brew, I set one aside to put a year or two on it, so I'm looking forward to cracking that one in the future
