Poured from a 750 mL caged and corked bottle into a tulip. I think this is a 2011 bottle, but there is no date anywhere to be found.
Right away I am kind of annoyed at this beer. With an aggressive pour, no head forms, and I am only able to create a few large bubbles that should not be confused for carbonation.
The aroma is sweet and raisin forward. Dates, molasses, caramel malts, and booze are present as well.
There is something a little bit strange in the taste. There are sweet, booze soaked raisins and dates up front, but there is a slightly tart and metallic apple cider flavor that throws me off a little bit. It does not seem infected, but it is not that good. Notes of caramel, molasses, toffee, and rum come through as well, with the finish still being quite sweet.
How it feels on the palate is definitely a weak spot. There is no carbonation, and overall it has a syrupy texture and flavor to go along with the medium to full body. There is a slightly tannic finish.
There is not much I really like about this beer.
Aroma: raisins, caramel, candy, spicy, apricot, nuts
Taste: medium sweet, raisins, toffee, nuts, prune, apricot nearbeer (5360) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2017
750 ml. bottled 11/08/2016. Deep mahogany body with a lasting half-inch of spongy, st9icky foam. Nose of prune, plum, bread, toasted walnut, clove and dark toffee. Flavor is the same mix. Medium-heavy body has a little too much fizz and an easy drinking balance with only a trace of the big abv peeking through. MelvinKalksma (1505) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit red fruit, chocolate and roasted malts.
Opaque brown/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight beige head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit, red fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a perfect flavour full of surprisingly red fruit and chocolate. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well. Oh man I am really looking forward to the Cuvee de Tomme.

Raisins and alcohol,some wine-ish scents. Taste is semi sweet and quite alcoholic. Very full, thick, milky. If only there was less alcohol..
0.75l bottle. Super dark ruby body with a thick beige head. Huge dried fruit notes in the aroma with sour cherry, plums, raisins, chocolate and cocoa. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, orange zest, figs, raisins, nutmeg and some floral hops. Smooth yet complex with the alcohol well hidden. Awesome.
