Bottled November 3, 2010.

Beer is a medium-hued brown, a bit reddish. A very large frothy white head starts to dissipate quickly, leaving little lacing behind. Head does not disappear entirely but settles into a small remainder.

Smell is yeasty and bready. Mild dark fruit is noticeable, plum, raisin and fig. The fruit scents start to become more pronounced as time passes. Some spice notes are there as well.

Taste follows the nose fairly closely. Malty, dark fruits and some spices- pepper, primarily. There is more fruit in the taste than the nose, with the plum and raisin accompanied by some orange. Not as sweet as many beers of the style.

Beer is incredibly smooth. Very mild carbonation. Lighter than most beers of the style, though still fairly full bodied.

Overall, very nice but not a superstar, in my opinion.

Picked up a 750ml bottle not too long ago, and I think I wanna try it in my new Duvel tulip. Best by date of 4/06/14.

A - Pours a kind of murky mahogany, with fine foam about 2 1/2 fingers high with nice retentinon. Takes a minute or two to fade, leaving some very nice lacing.

S - Holy crap that's a lot to take in. Spicy, peppercorns, crisp alcohol. Yeasty, fruity, and very warming.

T - Candied fruit. The yeast is pretty obvious, sweet, bready, and kinda spicy near the end, with a mellow bitter finish. Very light hoppiness.

M - Very fine foam gives it a delightful balance between pleasantly fizzy and creamy smooth. Warming alcohol isn't unpleasant, like it can be with other brews.

O - Easily one of the best beers that I have ever had the joy of becoming acquainted with. It's got body, smell, presentation... all of it. It might very well be the nectar of the gods.
