Poured into a tulip from a 12 oz bottle.

Color is hazy mahogany with a huge head of large bubbles that dissipates into clumpy islands of foam with minimal lacing. Nice smell - yeast, malt, dark fruit, banana, a touch of phenol and booze - very complex. Flavor is delicious - fruity and malty with barely a hint of the alcohol it contains. Body is medium, just a touch of carbonation - very drinkable. Goes down way too easy.

Overall, this is a great beer. I would like to compare the 10 and 8 side by side. I think I might like the 8 better.

Had this at Monk Beer Abbey in Royal Oak. Worth the $15 bottle...definitely lived up to its rep.
