2008 vintage bottle. Even with pouring slowly, this guy fizzed up like crazy with big champagne bubbles. I was afraid that it’d settle to little head, but instead it worked its way down to a perfect thin, white coating that lasted till the last drop. There was mild clouding in a reddish-dark brown color. Nose of yeast, toast, maple syrup, and alcohol. It initially struck me as similar to an American interpretation of a quad, then I was hit with the malty, fruity flavors of a dark porter. It’s a unique style bender and an extremely enjoyable one. The contrasting flavors had melded wonderfully and the alcohol was all but unnoticeable in the mouth-feel and flavor. Great stuff. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2010
