look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Beautiful deep amber color with a somewhat quickly diminishing fluffy head. Very hazy/cloudy. Not a hint of light passes through this biere. Smell is like nectar of the gods, yeast, honey, fruity. The taste is wonderful-fruity and yeasty and somewhat sweet. I guess I am feeling dates or raisins and maybe pears in this. Mouthd=feel is medium bodied. I would have expected more from the pour but it suits the beer. Drinkability is fine considering the high ABV. I guess this beer is good until May 5, 2015 at 3:05 PM.
Update, I have compared this with 5 of 7 of the Trappiste ales and I can't say anything is close, yet...
That's what it seems to say on the bottle...
