4.45/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Bought for 1.65 Euro at the supermarket across the street from me in Paris.
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass.
A - Dark brown color, though slightly lighter than the near-blackness of the St. Bernardus 12 or Rochefort 10. Head is an off-white / very pale tan that is moderately thick and lasts pretty long for a beer of its style.
S - Sweetness, hops, alcohol
T - Strong alcohol flavor here masks some of its other flavors. Though the smell is sweet, the taste definitely has more spiciness to it than sweetness. Not as fruity as most other Trappist beers, but some dark, dried fruit can be detected.
M - Thick mouthfeel (but not too thick like some porters and stouts can be) with quite a bit of creamy bubbliness to it. Pretty perfect IMO.
O - Very nice, strong beer. Great for unwinding if you've had a bad day like I have today.
