It is great to have an epic beer early in the year, it sets a good tone for 2010. This is mild on the nose, but you are graced with slight cherries, sherry, plum, raisins, nuts and alcohol. The taste is like a rum pudding. It is tart with yeast, dilute wine grape juice and dark fruits. It tastes very similar to Rochefort 10.
It has a yeasty caking with tart dark fruits that lasted a very long time. The alcohol warmth persisted even longer.

Gotta watch this one; it is smooth and creamy. It would be very easy to drink the whole magnum yourself.
Simply delicious with a great corked bottle presentation. It was a real show off beer.

No gaming, it was Holiday dinner time with the family. This brew was a winner, it really impressed my Father. Today was also the day I aquired the Tactical Nuclear Penguin.
A good, strong malty beer. The flavours are dark and complex. Well worth sampling many, many times.
