UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting [2009 Vintage]... Poured amber/reddish with a tan head. Vanilla, oak, sugary malts. Still a slight boozy tone after a year, but it really melded nicely with candied caramel, and toast toffee flavors.

mbgrayson (606) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 22, 2010
Pours a nice dark orangish red, with a long lasting tan head, from a 750 ml bottle. Notes of prune, raisins, and carmel. A good effort for a strong Belgian, with that clear high alcohol bite. Still, very drinkable, a thumbs up from me!
