look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A- Pours a dark brown with 1 finger of beige head. No lacing, but a nice thin layer remains atop a body full of suspended floaties.
S- Fruity, mainly cherries and berries, chocolate malt, candied sugar and belgian yeast. Although the smell is nice, I was hoping for the nose to be a little more robust. I really had to let this one warm up to pull everything out.
T- Much like the nose, starts off fairly sweet from the chocolate and caramel malt, middle and finish is spicy, bready and yeasty. Fruit is noticeable throughout and helps with balancing the flavors.
M- Lighter than what I was expecting. The carbonation is fairly lively, but it manages to remain smooth.
D- This beer does an exceptional job hiding the 9% abv. Definitely one of the better trappist beers out there IMO.
