Brown with a good amount of ruby colouring coming through, just over one finger of tan head, great retention and plenty of lace. Smell is yeaty with a bit of spice in the mix as well, clove being the most noteable, dark fruits, alcohol and touches of brown sugar. Taste has lots of dark fruits, raisins and plum, lots of fruity esters, clove throughout, spices and possibly corriander every so often, a little alcohol heat in the finish. Light carbonation, creamy and medium bodied, light feel at points though. A solid dubbel but by no means is this a world beater, just a quality beer that I would welcome again anytime.
Serving type: on-tap

330ml bottle. La Trappe Chalice glass. Dark brown color, cloudy appearance. Light beige foam & creamy crown shows fairly good retention. Dark fruit, slight phenolic, sweet & caramel malt, spiced aromas & lemon hints. Gentle tart & fruity flavors at first followed by toasted maltiness & chocolate hues. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Spicy & peppery palate. Tartiness is enhaced by carbonation but, finally, toasted malts overwhelm it. Very low hoppiness. Kind alcohol heat & sweet fruits into the finish. Delicious, complex, well balanced & nice spot of the Style.
