Poured from a 11.2oz brown bottle.
Pours a murky dark brown color. Very nice 3 finger dark head. Nice semi-foamy lacing too. Sediment in the bottle too which I like.
Very nice aroma on this one. It is sweet with the smells of raisons, flowers, fruits, caramel like smells, malts, etc. Hard to pin anything specific down as it smells very complex.
Taste is very good. Lots of nice malts, semi sweet tastes too, raisons and caramel. There is also some coffee like tastes and some bitterness too. As others have said, it does almost have a medicinal taste to it as well. The finish tastes very medicinal and is very strong and somewhat tingly. Very nice mouthfeel, and drinkable.
Overall this is a very good beer. The Trappist's really know how to make a good one.

4.35/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
