First off i would like to say that i might be a little biased because I f-ing love this beer.
This beer has a deep brown color lightened up a tiny bit by the little specs of yeast floating around in it. Nice tan head that never disappears.
Smells sweet and alcoholic with many fruity tones in it that compliment the strong malt backbone. I get hints of cherries, plums, apples and maybe even a tiny bit of banana.
Tastes VERY smooth for the high alcohol content. No alcohol is noticeable until the very end. It has a very subtle hint of chocolate to the flavor along with some burnt caramel. The yeast is the star in this beer as it should be, but it does have to compete with the overwhelming presence of sugars and alcohols in the beer. The hops come through a tiny tiny bit in the very end and just finnish this beer up perfectly. It is extremely well balanced. I absolutely love it!
This beer has a very nice and surprisingly light mouthful compared to how strong it is. It fills the entire mouth with flavor and leaves a creamy feel in your mouth.
My hats off to the monks who brew this stuff for making this strong of a beer this drinkable.
