Pours an almost black brown with a thin, creamy but quickly gone head that doesn't leave much lacing. It smells of chocolate and dark cherries. Nice but simpler than I would have thought. The taste is fantastic. Smooth cocoa up front, sweet and sour fruit, then a crisp aftertaste that tastes of baking spices. It reminds me of fresh baked bread. The mouthfeel is silky but surpisingly thin for its pedigree and color. Drinkability is great. The balanced flavor makes the aftertaste leave you wanting more of the original taste and vice-versa. This one doesn't stand up to the tripel but it is simple only by the standards of its off-the-charts trappist cousins. A beer not to be missed.
