Poured this into my favorite tulip glass
A - Dark ruby color to this beer which yields a very thick tan colored head that is 2-3 fingers thick. Plenty of spider lacing around my tulip glass with a few yeast particles on board.
S - dark fruits, candied sugar, sweet yeast and a malty spicy aroma are all present. The smell of freshly baked bread is in the air as well.
T - Front end flavor of sweet malt and peppery spice followed by a candy brown sugar flavor with bananas, cloves and nutmeg spice. There is a distinct bready yeast presence throughout the taste. There is also a unique complexity to this beer which gets even more intense as the beer warms up. A hint of citrus flavors are also present.
M - I would characterize this beer as having a medium body with moderate carbonation and a fizzy mouth feel. There is a very creamy and earthy texture to this beer which is quite pleasant. The alcohol is very well hidden especially for an 11.30% abv.
D - A very tightly flavored trappist quad that provides a very rich and complex flavor profile which is dangerously drinkable. Fantastic beer overall!

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.
