My 200th review...

A - A beautiful mix of ruby red and subdued brown colors... Rich big tan head made of big chunky bubbles... Cyclone of carbonation can be seen rising in the middle of glass... Head fades to a delectable lacing... Coats glass exceptionally well...

S - Yeast... Cherry... Apple... Pear... Grassy notes... Caramel... Malt... Raisin... Glazed pecans... Prunes... Wonderful delightful and complex...

T - Alcohol... Medicinal... Floral... Currants... Dates... Bubblegum... Malt... Mild spiciness... Cherry... Complex and evolving as new tastes are present with each and every sip as the beer warms... Good balance...

M - Medium bodied... A tad on the thin side... Creamy... Warming... Sharp on the tongue... Slick... Slightly dry at finish...

D - Deeply rich and complex brew... The bar is set high for Trappist creations and this one meets the expectations... This beer absolutely improves as it warms...

Dark brown appearance. Good head and lacing.

Aroma is of raisins, plums, fruitcake and syrup.

The taste is sweet with a complex mix of cherry cola, black grapes and treacle. There is a slight medicinal flavour here... in a good way. There's also a hint of spice in the finish.

The mouthfeel is superb. Very carbonated and palate cleansing making it easy to drink this beer.

Overall this is a very tasty and enjoyable Belgian beer that is rich and complex with a moderately high alcohol content. Very good drinking to be had here.

My mark out of a hundred would be 90.
