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

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: murky brown bodied beer with a light off white, but not quite tan colored head. A moderate pour produces a massive head on this beer. So be sure to pour gently with this beer.

Smell: Malty, fruity, and spicy. Simple and elegant, yet still complex nose!

Taste: Moderate malt profile here. It tastes of dark fruits mostly raisins, figs, and plums. In the middle of the beer you get another kick of sweetness that reminds of brown sugar mixed with a little bit of booze and spicy yeast. Finishes with more spice and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer on the light side of medium. Moderate carbonation thats is a little bit prickly, but is definately refreshing and lively.

Overall: Really solid trappist beer. I prefer the Rochefort 10 over this beer. Just a little bit thinner than I like my beers, but it appropriate for this beer style.
