look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Poured a deep, nut-brown, mahogany. Sizeable head that stays around a little while. Very hazy and opaque. Good lacing.

S- Sweet malts are prominent on the nose. Underlying floral and a slight mossy scent. Maybe a slight dark fruit profile in there. Very complex, I'm having trouble describing it.

T- Very much like the smell. Complex and tough to nail down accurate words to describe. Sweet malty profile with hints of molasses. Some definite floral qualities from some hops are present. Ends with some slight sour notes.

M- Actually very light for a brew with such a high ABV. A little heat from the alcohol. Adequate carbonation and very sessionable.

Overall, this is my first trappist beer and very promising for the genre. It is basically my first dubbel. I'm looking forward to trying more of the Belgian styles.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Nice dark brown with a one finger head the recedes very quickly leaving behind no lacing.

Smell: Dark fruits dominate the aroma. Very inviting.

Taste: Wow. Amazing flavor. Very smooth and well balanced. Great dark fruit flavor that is not overly dominant. Some caramel as well. Hops are very mild.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated. Great body.

Overall: An amazing beer that lives up to its reputation.
