4.7/5 rDev +18.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Glassware: Chimay chalice...
Occasion: celebrating the end of school year number thirteen!
Appearance: dark mahogany body with a zesty, retreating head that thins to a mist...
Aroma: fruity, cherry/sherry and pleasant esters mix together to seduce a sip....
Palate: thick, full-bodied, warming rush that impales the teeth--a visceral experience...
Taste: again, cherry and oken flavors--"Rich and complex" is repeated on the label, so it must be true, coming from an abbey...
Overall: as clean a high as one can derive from a beer--fulfills the expectations with a thick, powerful experience...bought this in December and shelved it for a special occasion...
Serving type: bottle

This pours a ruddy raisin brown color with light foam. There’s a bit of stone fruit and plums on the aroma, with an earthy estery profile. I find the flavor to be sweetish but not cloying, with some plums and figgy notes. Comes off smooth and almost velvety.
Serving type: on-tap
