It is a syrupy delicious mess. The original label file had January 2013 on them, so I've thinking about bottling this for at least 11 months. I tasted it once before when we transferred it and added the oak spiral, and it's even better. Maybe I would say it's a little sweet, but hey: it's Port. I don't get much of the oak, but it definitely tastes well aged, and I think it will just get better. The thing I am most impressed with is the color. In the glass it's nice and burgundy purple, but when it you tip it or get down to the last bits, it has a gorgeous brown tone.
Moving on, the Belgian looks wonderful in primary:
with a golden honey color and a kreusen like a cloud. About 12 hours after this picture, it had pushed a bunch of foam up and out of the blowoff hose and had started to settle back down. So I added a pound of sugar.
