A - Raisin color with a nice creamy head that retains well.
S - Medicinal and kind of mentholated, herbal, some prune and a hint of candy sweetness.
T - Spicy with notes of clove, rum raisin, and dates. As it warms, some chocolate and vanilla.
M - Rich and creamy, but with a smooth finish.
O - Another great offering from La Trappe. I'd like to keep a bottle or two around during the colder months.

330ml Bottle from The House Of Trembling Madness (York):
Mahogany brown with a 0.5cm head that's a fine & bubbly bordering on creamy. Retention is okay but the head slowly reduces in size over the first couple of minutes, leaving a fine lacing across the surface.

Sweet & complex with some dark & ripe fruits featuring plum, dates & cherries with a little raisin & sugar. Rich with some caramel malts & touches of hops too.

Quite sweet with ripe, dark fruits; the plum & dates are here again. Rich with some spice coming through & nice malts plus good hops too. Some caramel & grapes round things off with a faint hint of alcohol as well.

Light medium in body with lively carbonation& a sweet feel that has spicy areas & a dry, smooth finish that almost seems creamy & goes down well.

Great stuff from La Trappe, a very sweet beer that was balanced out with some good spice & touches of malts which prevented the beer from seeming sickeningly sweet. A very good offering and one I'd pick up again.
