4.86/5 rDev +13%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
A: poured a murky brown with a 1 inch head the color was not only murky but also seemed to change in differing light
S: Dark fruits and a lot of spices very slight notes of yeast overall there is a very strong smell of alcohol but in a refined way like a nice liqueur or maybe a port
T: similar to the scent with the dark fruits upfront followed by the bite of spices again there is an overall alcohol character yet it is pleasant and deceptively subtle.
M:Thick almost creamy it compliments the flavor and rounds out the beer
O: really good i am biased i admit towards this style of beer and the Trappists perfected it this is everything i love about beer tradition flavor and strong alcohol it all clicks so nicely in this beer
Serving type: bottle
