11.2 oz bottle, poured into a Rochefort chalice.

Appearance: Pours a reddish, dark brown color. About a finger and a half of a sticky, frothy tan head. Leaves a fine, bubbly lacing on the glass. Absolutely opaque and murky, with no visible carbonation. Traces of alcohol legs left on the glass.

Smell: Big, complex aromas to this one. Lots of sweet aromas upfront, malty, like a sweet bread. Some spicy notes, baking spices - cinnamon, nutmeg. Hints of brown sugar or molasses. Lots of sweet fruits, some vinous grape notes, some darker, dried fruit aromas - raisins, figs, dates. More and more of these coming out as the beer warms up, blending together with just some subtle notes of alcohol on the nose. Just a huge, complex variety of aromas that unwind in the nostrils.

Taste: Like a complex code deciphered on the tongue... just so much to this one. Almost a wine-like tartness to start here. This soon fades into a dark fruit dominated sweetness - raisins, figs, date flavors again with some sugary, caramel, toffee notes... like brown sugar coated raisins. Beneath this, the sweetness lingers and mixes with some pastry bread notes, with some spicy, earthy notes... like a cinnamon, raisin bread flavor. Finishes with a spicy bitterness that sweetens as the beer warms up. So many different flavors unlock on the palate... just an incredible taste to this one.

Mouthfeel: Big, full body to this one. Coats the mouth - the tongue, the cheeks, the roof of the mouth. Almost thick and chewy between your teeth. Big carbonation feel scrubs over the tongue, readying your palate for each next, new layer of flavor. Warming feel in the mouth and throat from the alcohol. Hearty and filling.

Overall: In my opinion, this is an excellent beer. So many different experiences for the nose, the mouth - just an absolute joy to drink. This is definitely one you want to drink slowly and savor. It seems readily available and though it can be expensive ($6.99 for 11.2 oz, in this area), in my mind it's worth every penny. A perfect beer to break out on a special occasion. This is an absolute favorite of mine and I'd highly recommend trying it to anybody.
