You can't go wrong with Trappist, Belgian beers. I mean, these guys basically invented craft beer, at least the Continental European styles. So maybe the blokes in Britain laid some groundwork too, but Belgium and Germany are like the Yankees and Red Sox of beer. Always good. Side poured from the bottle into a Boulevard snifter, standard vigor.

Appearance - Easily the most impressive part of this brew. Pours a deep brown, amber like color with a soapy, two finger head that piles on top of the beer like linemen on a loose ball. Really no head retention or lacing, but when you first pour that beer, it is awesome.

Smell - Big dark fruits right in your face. Musty, yeasty, Belgain excellence. Plums, grapes, figs, sweetness, raisins. Only thing to make it much better would be the smell of bacon.

Taste - Yummy dark fruits, an alcohol presence, malts. The malts come first and lay the groundwork for the sweetness and dark fruits afterwards. Dates, figs, prunes, raisins, all sorts of dark fruit wash the palate after the caramel maltiness. There is so much tasty sweetness, yet underpinned by a nice little alcohol pop.

Mouthfeel - Big time carbonation, finishes super crisp with lingering effects from the fruits and a little alcohol warmth.

Overall - Just like I thought, this was an excellent beer. I went into it expecting something good, and it did not disappoint. Condor recommended and approved, very good example of a good Belgian brew of any style. Those monks know what they are doing.
