4.68/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Setting: On the back patio on a comfortable 70 degree evening. Poured from the bottle into my riedel brandy snifter, and watched the kids play.
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with only a hint of clarity and a thick 2 finger fizzy tan head which leaves nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: Wonderful nose that offers dark fruits, fine spices, port, some alcohol and a slight nutty sense. I spent the better part of 5 minutes just enjoying this aroma.
Taste: Fantastic array of dark fruit, nuttiness, buttery burnt malts, a touch of hops and a slight hint of what I think may be banana on the finish. An exceptionally balanced brew which only improves as it warms.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and silky smooth. Wonderfully chewy, coated the mouth well as to add to the experience.
Drinkability: The carbonation and complex flavors help hide the ABV with this beer so it is very deceptive and will sneak up on you.
Final Thoughts: First off I would like to thank God and the monks for making this available to me anytime I want one. This is a truly fantastic beer that has monster signature flavors and aromas that are sure to please.
Serving type: bottle
