33cl bottle poured into a Trappises Rochefort chalice
It pours a deep red-brown with a frothy head. This head goes down to lacing around the glass with solid islands of foam/froth in the beer.
Its smells of dark fruits and alcohol. The alcohol rides the coat strings of the fruit smell and lets you know this beer means business.
As you drink you get some of the spice from the trappist yeast, a slight fruit taste and get hit on the back end by the alcohol to remind you this is a 9.2% ABV beer.
The is a light, subtle carbonation that mixes with the lacing and adds a frothy element.
Overall it is a fantastic beer for sitting around and talking, and enjoying the company of others. Not one to rushed or hurried but to enjoy its essence.
