This is my first time trying the Trappistes line...

A - Pours an opaque black, two fingers of off-white head with relentless retention that doesn't settle and stays throughout.

S - The scent is quite bready with scents of bitter rye and sour lemon and a sort of cardboard scent as well. Weird.

T - A very fruity ale with plums and grapes followed by toffee and some dark cocoa malts. A little bit of a chalky flavour also comes through and the sweetness of the ABV also comes through.

M - Medium bodied, but feels quite light on the tongue. Goes down smooth and leaves the tongue nice and wet.

D - I really enjoyed this one, and I am really glad I scored a bottle in the beer exchange. I will most definitely be trying the rest of the Trappistes line and would highly recommend this to any fan of Belgians.
