Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark, mostly opaque copper with a finger and a half of nice tan, fluffy head. Bubbles are on the larger end of the spectrum, but uniformly sized. Good retention but minimal lacing.

S: Dark fruit and malt, bread and spice, fruitcake

T: Light bready malt, some fruit, and a lengthy finish that really comes together nicely.

M: Medium body and high carbonation, higher than I'd prefer. Like a Dr. Pepper. Creamy texture.

O: Very easy drinking, but still has the complexity of a Belgian. I think I like this better than 8 but not quite as much as 10 (though the styles are distinct).

11.2oz bottle. Bottled August, 2010.

A: Pours a light cola brown (think cream soda) with a huge light tan head.

S: Cherry, nutmeg, raisin bread. Sweet and slightly thin.

T: Drying, less sweet than the aroma. Lightly medicinal, figs, raisins, biscuit, birch, mild syrupy cherry. Very dry finish.

M: Fizzy, slightly too thin.

O: Definitely has that classic trappist ester profile, but this one's a bit thin and the carbonation is overly fizzy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - In the bottle, not poured.

S - A lovely sweet smell, with a note of cherry and spice.

T - Simpler than expected. Aftertaste is more bitter than the smell had me awaiting.

M - Lighter and with more carbonation than I expected.

Overall, I found the taste to be more too one-dimensional for me to rate it as a great beer as opposed to just a good one.
