3.84/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. Dark brown color with intense haziness and quite a bit of lightly colored sediment floating around. Not sure if the sediment was meant to be, but it did not affect the mouth feel at all. Super huge, foamy, off-white head thanks to the volatile nature of the brew. The head settled a bit around a quarter-inch and followed the top of the beer all the way down. It was excellent, but didn't leave too much lacing.

The nose is full of lots of roasted malts, a deep, sweet, caramel, and a nice handful of dark fruits, like dates, raisins, and figs. A hint of clove is present as well, as it is in many Belgian style brews. The taste begins with a slight sweetness and a sharp hit of carbonation. As the beer warms up in your mouth, the malt starts to shine through, along with some of the caramel and barley flavors. A hint of the fruit is noticeable as well, present from the beginning until the end. The mouth is fairly thick and very creamy, thanks in part to the wonderful head that lasted the entire way down. Left the palette feeling a tad sticky and not too dry.

Great Trappist brew that everyone should try (at least once). The flavor profile, while complex, worked together nicely - the sign of a Belgian beer done correctly.
