I drank this from a 12oz bottle into my Orval glass, true abbey style.
The beer pours a medium brown that is super light, just lets the light through and makes it look super watery. The head is light tan, rises only about a finger and is gone right away.
The aroma is on the lighter side and tries very hard to be like a trappist but falls short. There is a ton of malts, dark fruits, prunes, caramel but there is a stale fakeness to it that doesn't make it wholly appealing.
The taste is the same as the aroma, similar to trappist but just not there yet. I can't put my finger on this, but its just so sub below a beglian.
