Poured from 330mL bottle into an Ommegang chalice.
Pours a murky dishwater brown color, not much of a head - just some off-white with hints of brown. Some carbonation clings to the edges of the glass, but not a whole lot going on in terms of lacing.
Smells of caramel, hints of dark fruits, and the spiciness of Belgian yeast.
Malt up front, fruitiness quickly comes in, then overwhelmed by spicy yeast and more sweet malt. This rush of flavors yields to a resonant flash of toffee. Fairly dry finish leaves the palate clean, save a lingering hint of caramel.
Medium bodied beer with good carbonation. Just the right balance of smoothness and carbonation. Very nice.
Tasty beer and enjoyable in its own regard, although I do prefer it's bigger brother "8". More solid craftsmanship from the monks at Abbaye de Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy.
