2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Deep brown, mahogany & opaque with a rich, chunky tan foam that settles quick. Aroma of sweet molasses, toasted nuts, Candi sugar & a strong Belgian yeast presence. Unfortunately it comes off as quite medicinal on the nose & phenolic all around. Heavy, strong, prunes. Taste has even more toffee coated prunes with Candi sugar, caramel, & sugary glaze. Not as medicinal on the palate, but very sweet. Borderline cloying. Spicy Belgian yeast heavier towards the finish, clove, toasted caramel malt, faint anise, & prune finish. Not really my jam.

This made for a very nice full bodied and luscious treat. the body and flavor were great, though the pecans take a backseat to the cocoa. warming, but not hot. well done."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared thanks to Charlie. Minimal to no head. Dark brown and murky. Nose of papery oxidation with some sherry notes. Taste is slightly tart with some Belgian funk and a lot of alcohol warming. Wow. I get minimal cocoa and no pecan flavor. As it warms it seems a bit infected. Definitely a bit tart and funky. I think this is on its way down.
