Looks rich in color, bronze cant see thru it. Smells like caramel apple pie. Taste is complex....has a bitter bite sorta like sour apple and coffee with honey and a tangy aftertaste. I would definitely drink another...its one of my favorites. A great addition to any cellar.
Serving type: on-tap

batch number 3. poured into crystal chalice. served at 61 degrees.
pours a honey brown. light lacing with a small head.
man. this is the best smelling beer ive ever come across. dark fruits dominate. sweet as can be
dark fruits with a heavy toffee aftertaste. alcohol content is virtually non existent.
cant believe my little liquor store carried this. at 20.00 this is super pricey but well worth it. the best trappist beer or for that matter Belgian style (made in holland) beer ive had. its a shame the Bros havent tried this yet.

Batch #3, poured in a snifter glass. Enjoyed with a smile.
This beer reminds me of a time I was traveling with my family in Croatia. I was 14, interested in women as long as they weren't super hairy. I don't like that, keep it in France.
We went to visit a castle there, it was an amazing spectacle that you could see from the port we landed on. Before I proceed with this story, how about a quick one... I saw a girl my age on a topless beach, it was amazing. There wasn't much going on, but it was okay because I was the same age. It's not okay for you to picture it, creeper.
Anyway, the castle. This thing was incredible. Everything was preserved pretty well, especially the electric elevators. We rode one up to the main floor of said castle, and proceeded down the entry way. It turned out there was an exhibit going on in the castle. "Bitchin!" I thought. Then we got closer.
I don't know if all Croatians are into this stuff (let me know either way, I'm interested if they are or not), but we were at an exhibit full of Dominatrix style porn. Straight up, abusive ass porn. Whips and chains everywhere, screens playing porn, hairy armpits and lower regions (which is code for vaginas) everywhere.
It was a mess, and I was with my grandparents. I was embarrassed, yet intrigued. Anyway, we decided to go to the top of the castle, check the lookout, and then leave as fast as we could.
We got in the elevator and hit the top floor. We rose about 5 feet, at the same pace elevators normally ascend. Then the elevator stopped and all power went out.
We were all thinking the same thing, "I'm about to get raped by a woman with a whip and my grandmother is in the same room".
I was upset, I wasn't going to have the second person I had ever had sex with be a hairy Croatian with a whip. It's just not my style. And I wasn't mentally prepared, either.
Anyway, when the power came on and we made it to the top of the castle. It was actually really nice. Had a view of Dubrovnik and some homeless people.
I'm glad I didn't get raped in front of my grandmother by a fuzzy Croatian. I have nothing against Croatian women, they're gorgeous, but the ones that were on the offensive team were not. Otherwise I would have been more receptive, grandmother or not.
This beer is like one of those gorgeous Croatian women. I'd let it make sexy time with me in front of my grandparents. Any. Day.
Appearance: A gorgeous Croatian woman
Smell: Roasted Bananas, Alcohol
Taste: Probably like a gorgeous Croatian woman tastes, I have no idea. Vanilla Oak, dark fruits. It tastes incredible.
Mouthfeel: Obviously, like a gorgeous Croatian woman. I'm gonna go ahead and pass up the opportunity to directly compare mouthfeel and women. More carbonated than expected, but actually it's perfect. Good body, excellent carbonation that lightens it up a bit.
Overall: This thing was a little pricey, which is better than being a little dicey (Croatian castles). I dropped about $17 on this thing, and I'd do it again. In fact, I bet I'll do it tomorrow.
Suck on that, hairy armpit ladies.
