A - Dark brown, poured a 2-3 finger creamy brown head that dissipated to 1 finger.

S - the alcohol gives a sweet smell. Dark fruits, raisins, dates, maybe some cherry notes.

T - Nice complexity of dark fruit flavors much like the smell. Definitely get those cherry notes. no clear hop presence other than a nice balancing bitterness for the sweet fruits. Finishes with some of the sweetness of the alcohol. Finishes dry and clean with little to no aftertaste.

F - Heavy almost syrupy, but works very well with the heavy fruit flavors, excellent.

Overall this is a very good beer, as I expected having tried the white and the red from Chimay. Trappist brews are quickly becoming some of my favorite beers.
