5/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: creamy head with bubbly appearance around ring of glass, dark brown, opaque, holds slight head nicely
Aroma: sweet malt aroma with deep dark fruit complexities, Belgian yeasty aroma yielding notes of prune, fig, pepper, with sweetness of heavy malt usage coming through nicely
Taste: rich malt heaviness balanced out by yeast fruit flavors, bready malt taste, with spicy phenols exhibited to counterbalance the thickness of malt, can taste the high alcohol content but not enough that you would suspect of being 11.5%
Mouthfeel: silky, tongue coating similar to a stout, slightly cloying but in a good way such that you take small sips and enjoy for long time. Slight prickle on the finish from carbonation and alcohol percentage. Moderately dry finish
Overall Impression: tremendous Trappist ale, further evidence that these beers deserve their own special classification. With strong notes of dark fruits and slight spiciness from hops to balance out heavy dark malt bill, this beer packs a punch that will knock you on your ass on the first sip. The heaviness will leave you satisfied but the complexity will leave you intrigued down to the last sip
Serving type: bottle
