aged one year... pours black with mild champagne bubbles. nose is carmel, toffee and dark fruit soaked in bourbon. mouthfeel is lots of carbonation, almost too much for a beer. taste is toffee and dark fruit and cherries. finishes with fermented fruit of mild bourbon. good, but there are better.

Bottle - Dark sweet Woody malts. Jet black brown with no head. Lots of burnt sugar, dark Woody notes. Tons of flavor, no booze and a long malty, smoky Woody finish.

Bottle thanks to hubsluvsbeer: Poured a black with brown head. Aroma is mild coffee and sweet to the nose. Taste was caramel malts, sweet, yet offset by coffee.

Not a great beer. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells good, vanilla and coffee. Taste is not good, very sharp and boozy, not much else. Had on tap at the Lighthouse Beer and Wine Festival in Wilminton, NC.

4 pack, to snifter. Pours nearly black with a very small, red-tinged khaki head. A little clumpy lacing. Aroma of coffee liqueur and candied fruit. Flavor is initially dominated by raisins, dates and booze. Calms down a little and the coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal come through. Really not getting any Belgian yeast. Finish is fairly scotch-like, with more alcohol burn and some oak notes. Slick mouthfeel. Absolutely no attempt has been made to hide the near-12% abv - I’m into it, but if you prefer the booze on your impy to be buried a little more, you may not like it as much.

Abio (1817) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2015
Pretty good brew. Nice roastiness, good amount of biterness, and good looking in the glass.

Barrelbelly (723) - BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2015

Black pour, small brown head. Huge aroma of chocolate, raisin, cocoa, flavor of chocolate, vanilla, raisin, yeast, and a hint of roast and grape and alcohol.
