Pours a medium brown with orange tint with a nice creamy looking head that leaves a nice sheet of lace behind,bid phenolic smoky/spicey aromas with a touch of bubblegum.Flavors are quite yeasty and spiced,cinnamon and cloves with some plum and lingering smokiness in the finish.Very yeasty but bot overpowering in the spiciness even a little soft,well made and enjoyable and quite quaffable for the alc%.

Abbey's aren't my favorite style, but I enjoy one every now and then. I prefer a tripel or a saison. I'm aging a couple of 2013's though to see how they develop.

T - Molasses. Tons of sweet caramel. No alcohol. Dark fruit in the middle. Finishes with very rich, smooth caramel notes.

M - Creamy start. Some carbonation in the middle. Thick, syrupy finish.

O - Great dessert beer.
