Thanks to mday for opening this bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours near purple and it is quite cloudy. No real head or lacing. Maybe a bubble or two on top. The nose is a bit herbal and fruity with a bit of the fruit coming through. The taste is slightly sweet with a bit of an astringency. The fruit doesnt really come through. The finish is really quite dry on a fairly-light body for what it is. Slight vitamin character on the finish. Overall, decent enough but Im guessing this has seen better days.

12 oz. bottle for $15 at the brewery. This was a nice surprise. This had a turbid purplish color. The head faded away quickly. This had a nice Belgian Tripel aroma that is quickly masked by the black currant aroma. It has a slightly tart/sour aroma that mixes very well with the aforementioned aromas. The beer has a nice black currant flavor, that is subtly complimented by a sweet Belgian Tripel flavor. Towards the very end you get a nice tart/sour finish that rounds the beer out quite well. This beer had a little carbonation in it, but it was just the right amount. We had this with "Pasta White" made by Alan, and both the beer and the pasta were great; they complimented each other quite well. Very nice beer, and Im definitely happy that I was able to try this.

05 bottle from HOTD. Dark raisin colored pour with a creamy eggshell head. Aroma is yeast, candy sugar, honey and dark fruit. Flavor shows lots of prune and raisin along with caramel, biscuit, and even tart cherry skin. The alcohol isnt forward anymore. Pretty good.

3rd cassis in 5 days. This aged bottle had vegatable flavour in it. Poured very cloudy fruit mixture, with Caesar head. Emits a refreshing fruit, with grapefruit notes. The mouthfeel is creamy with an acidic element. Outside of the veggie aspect, there is a mostly green grape and raisin flavour.
