Enjoyed on pint night at pazzos pizza pub in Lexington KY. Poured from a 750? into the signature chimay glass. Already halfway drunk by the time i am writing this review so I apologize.
A - Dark cloudy brown with ruby highlights. Lacing is superb and the head lasts forever. With this glass, you can see the bubbles almost oozing to the top from the etch in the middle of the glass. Awesome.
S - Probably the weakest point of this beer. Smells of yeast and dark malt. Kind of get some dried fruit smell in there but not too prevalent.
T - Dark and sweet. Caramel and plums galore. Indescribable flavor. It manages to capture great aspects of many different styles. There is a slight hop bitterness on the finish.
M - Medium to heavy body with ample carbonation. Maybe even a little too much.
O - An amazing experience with an amazing trappist ale. This one was definitely a great treat.
