Really nice aromas and Flavors of caramel, bread pudding but not sweet, Belgian yeast spice. Not too boozy. Dark caramel color and a weighty plate with an even smoothness.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A 2015 bottle, I know I should save it BUT I have another that I will store...
Pours almost black, very thin head as is typical for Belgian ales.
Aroma with leather and caramel...
Taste is amazing, rather lively mouth feel,sweet, caramel, hints of coffee and chocolate bitterness. Yet it is refreshing and inviting. Some hints of warm boozy feel in the palate as well... But not a wine feeling..

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 vintage, Pours medium, hazy brown. Tan head. Nose is molasses sugar, dried fruit, especially raisins and jam. Taste is sweet and malty. Tiniest bit of warmth but truly well balanced considering the strength. Rich and full bodied and cloying but in a good way! Truly magnificent beer.
