Holy shit. This mother is on-tap.
Translucent red-brown with pink and orange highlights. Full pour cancelled out the big head, but the beige layer that's there is holding out with stillness and glossy film. One of the best colored beers I've seen.
Rum candy, raisin, candi sugar, cinnamon, dried apricot and prune, nutty yeast, and a whiff of sweet alcohol. Top o'the line quad aroma.
Sweet and boozy with plump dark fruits, confectionary spices, herbal hop, and liquory strength. Heavy on raisiny malts, soft chocolate, caramelized sugars, and spicy yeast phenolics. Whiff of smokiness and notes of anise and allspice. Incredibly complex and supple and warm. A bit on the sweet side, which falters the score away from perfection.
Big ol' body with great feel. Smooth and elegant. More syrupy than creamy. The carbonation is in there too, subdued but thriving. A happy sipper.
An old favorite. A contender for favorite trappist. Highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
