Bottle dated best before 08 03 088. Big thanks to ross for hooking me up with this huge milestone. Rating number 200 on the day I graduate from college. Pours a deep mahogany, ruby highlights, and a long lasting huge pillow white head. Smells of rich dark fruit, candi sugar, cereal, a light grassiness, yeasty, a hint of alcohol, somewhat vinous, amazingly complex. Flavor profile is so deep, Iím not even sure I know how to describe it. Getting some candied figs, lightly chocolaty, chewy malts, buttery on the finish. Full velvety body with carbonation just dancing in your mouth. This definitely lives up to itís reputation.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle, wedding gift from CMUBEERMAN. Pours hazy red brown with floaters, off white head. Aroma is funky, musty, fruity, meaty, spicy. Flavor is caramel, meaty, spices, wheat, fruit. This beer is more complex than I expected. I figured that this beer was over rated, but I actually think it deserves the hype; itís well balanced, unique and delicious. The alcohol content is well hidden.

Bottled on 22/11/06. Pours dark brown with tan head. Fruity aroma, wonderful complex taste that has been described already nearly 1,000 times. Finally something that lives up to all its hype. Definitely one to bring out for special occassions.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 This one is near perfect. I canít pick out any flaws in this one. Perfect pour great color and head. The first taste is almost silky. Malt, chocolate, brown sugar,and molasses. I enjoyed this sublime masterpiece wondering how it was knocked off its rightful place as #1.

Holy Moly! Only had the # 8 before which was divinely balanced. This however, is evidence of divinity wrought by the hand of man. Poured a 4 oz sample in a belgian glass. Nice light tan head with some lace. Very aromatic with lots of dark ripe fruits, berries, chocolate, malty, some spice, molasses, damp forest, earth. Even sex. Bless this beer. I drank it and feel blessed myself. Plush velvet texture. Reminds me of certain beautiful women whom I canít recall unless Iím dreaming. . I want to regurgitate this beer for another go íround. Cheers!

Sampled at Woodshop Tasting. #300. Poured a dark brown color with a nice light brown head. Aroma was caramel with hints of dates, raisins, chocolate and a classic trappist yeast. The flavor was sweet caramel with a mix of raisin, toffee, plum, dates and the list goes on. The one beer that really lives up to itís name.
