11.2oz. bottle poured into a tulip.
(A)- Pours a deep brown chestnut hue with just the slightest hint of reddish highlights. Produced a nice cap of tan froth and lacing.
(S)- A nice combo of clay yeast and dark fruits with bits of biscuit and banana at the end.
(T)- Similar to the smell. A nice combo of subtle clay-like yeast that flows into some nice dark fruits of cassis, plum, grape, and banana. Finishes just slightly dry with hints at biscuits.
(M)- A nice carbonation level and a really nice balance to it. Fruity, but nicely earthy and a smooth; not harsh yeast aspect. The 10% ABV is very well hidden.
(D)- A classic quad that fits the bill quite well. Fitting of the trappist name and reputation.

05/15/14 On tap. A fine, fine beer. Caution, as this 10% ABV bomb is deceptive. It's as slick & smooth as your grandma said it would be. I find this to be a faultless beer...unless you plan on having more than a few (2 or 3). The seduction lies in the ultra inviting balance bitter & sweet (which should be a good lesson in life). With temperance this could prove to be an ally. I, for one, have learned to live with it, gladly.
