4.43/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle in Chimay glass.

Appearance: 4
Brown-black nearly opaque body with white-brown head that quickly fades.

Smell: 4.5
Sweet molasses and sugar with caramel/bready malt and notes of dark fruit and chocolate. There is an especially prominent grape/plum note that increases as the beer warms. Overall, very pleasant.

Taste: 4.5
Dominated by dark fruits, with less sweetness than anticipated by the aroma. Through there is still is the molasses element of the malt present though. Moderate presence of alcohol, with notable warmth. Fnishes with slight bitterness and lingering astrigentness, similar to a good red wine.

Mouthfeel: 4
Smooth, mild carbonation with slight creaminess, but not overly viscous feel. Middle of the road with a balance between sweetness and dryness on tongue.

Drinkability/Overall: 4.5
Extremely drinkable despite high alcohol content 11.3%. I find it to be a complex, but very balanced beer. But it also pleasantly rich in taste, even in comparison to other quads such as St. Bernardus 12. Pairs with food, similar to a good red wine.

4.98/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Much like the Chimay line of beers, and other Trappist brews, the blasé appearance of the bottle belies the complex flavor that lies within. It smells heavily like sugar, probably brown, and anise seed. It tastes heavily fruity, like a carbonated brandy, and is very yeasty. Goes pretty well with some Machego cheese and some hard salami. It's also got a pretty high alcohol content, around 11%, but the kick's somewhat delayed as it's just so darn tasty and toasty you don't really notice the wallop it packs 'til later.
