Pours a murky pond like raisin brown. Some sediment slowly settles to the bottom. 1 finger of light tan head then settles to a thin film. Scent is of dark fruit, raisons, plums, prunes, cherries and figs with light spices and alcohol esters. Taste follows the scent with dark alcohol soaked fruit, christmas spices, brown sugar and alcohol esters. Snappy carbonation makes this go down faster than you would expect. Delicious.

In the interest of full disclosure I love strong dark ales of most every stripe. This is no exception, although I must say slightly drier than I had anticipated. The malts are still very much front and center, taste a bit like the other famous abbey product the fruit cake, but it is balanced by a a slight bitterness and the aforementioned dryness. When cold the high carbonation makes for a very refreshing sensation, as the brew warms the more caramel notes come to the forefront. There is little alcohol character, a truly dangerous trait in a beer this tasty. Complex and lovely.
