A – Pours with a very large head that falls quickly. It bubbles like it is still alive. The beer is cloudy brown about the color of cola. It is obvious that it was bottle conditioned since there it seems as though the cloudiness comes from yeast. It looks like a brown ale. Some brown stuff settled on the bottom of the glass, it can't be yeast its too dark.
S – It smells fruity and sweet with notes of toffee and caramel. It has an acetone like smell underneath.
T – Tastes of toffee and carmel with a slight wine flavor. Slightly acidic tasting. Very sweet for such a high alcohol beer. This isn't something that I would have multiple of, which is a good thing considering the price.
M – The beer feels medium in body with a prickly bubble feel in the mouth. Maybe a tad too carbonated. Could just be the individual bottle however.
O – A very, very interesting Belgian ale. Like nothing I have ever had before. This is my first introduction into the Trappistes. Originally was going to rate a 3.5, but then I wanted another one so I'll give it a 4.0.

330ml bottle. Westmalle Chalice glass. Dark brown, deep ruby tints to the light. Hazy appearance. Beige foam creates a cottony & lasting crown. Copious lacing rings on sides. Belgian yeast & toasted malts to the nose as well as dark fruits-prune, raisin & cherry hues. Flavors as expected from aroma profile completed by woody notes & kind sugary warm sensation. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Voluptuous & flavorful palate. Fruits & gentle heat mixed with a very low bitterness linger into a long finish. One of my favourite Trappists. Complex & Great !!!
