rajendra82 (952) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Classy packaging of a tin with corrugated cardboard padding, which ensured that the beer was well protected from light and shocks. The beer looked deep copper when pouring out of the corked, and caged, 22 oz. bomber, but it looked nearly black in the glass. The head was quite small, but lasted a while, and left a solid sheet of lacing on the sides of the St. Bernardus goblet. The smell was apples, cherries, pears, and raisins, with a touch of allspice. The taste was very fruity as well, but the sweetness was balanced out by yeasty dryness and spice, and the beer was not at all cloying. The balance was outstandingly drinkable. The mouthfeel was light ,and the alcohol was well hidden. The finish had some brief spicy notes before tit faded. This was a quality beer in all aspects.

750mL bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dark fruits, spices, and somewhat sweet candied sugar. Flavour is lightly spicy, with dry dark fruits and bready malt. Lively carbonation, with medium sweetness and decent dryness. Okay beer - overrated.
