4.1/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Very dark brown / purple color. Rowdy head -- maybe I should not have poured it straight down the glass. Expected yeasty floaters from bottle conditioning.

S: Caramel sweet scents with dark fruit notes. Certainly a yeast-driven smell. Alcohol warmth detected by the nose. Hot orange?

T: Spicy notes dominate with phenols that stick around. Alcohol flavor is very much present. Finishes very dry. Not quite as smooth as others in this category (namely St.B 12) ~ the dominance of alcohol flavor is a bit of a put-off for me.

As the beer warms, the alcohol flavor gets a little peppery, and as it warms a little more, the alcohol notes are a bit more muted (less sharp). Later, brandy flavors show up.

MF: Light bodied for such a strong beer. Seems a little less alive than other examples (effervescence).

D: A very nice beer. Are the standards raised because it is made by Trappist Monks? Probably. Is that fair? Probably.

Are my expectations raised after reading how BA Mag rated this the "best beer of all time"? Yes. The fact that this is made by monks in a tradition that is centuries old does not improve the appearance, smell, taste, or mouthfeel, but it does improve the drinkability from a historical perspective.
