Note: Picked up all three of these at B and B in Bayside (6, 8, 10). This is the first time ever experiencing this or any of the major 6 trappist breweries. I am excited, but I will try to remain unbiased. I however did do my research, so I know what to expect. Allowed to cool to 50 degree cellaring temp before drinking.
A: Hazy, dark golden amber, with a head of a million tiny bubbles, that you can hear exploding. Settles into a creamy off white head that leaves a small amount of lacing.
S: Big caramel and chocolate notes. Effervescent plum and cherry. You can clearly smell the dreamlike weave of malt, trappist belgian yeast .
T: First notes are of chocolate, prune, plum, cherry and a mild citrus note. Secondary notes dance a tapestry of noble hop, sweet malt, and cinnamon. An aftertaste of dark, pumpernickel or whole wheat bread.
M: Medium to mid-heavy. Low carbonation. More sweet than bitter, and has a slight alcohol warming.
O: This beer is absolutely fantastic. Almost a religious experience. I agree with Jason Alstrom, when he says that this beer is too great to be served alone. I paired it with roasted pepper hummus and crackers. This could have also been paired with cheese, specifically greek kasseri. I cant believe there are 2 other beers at a higher level than this one. Again, if i didnt make it clear enough, this is a beautiful work of craftsmanship.
