Bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. Head: thick, beige, stable, nice lacing. Color: dark red brown, very beautiful. Aroma: filled with malts, notes of caramel and dark fruits. Alcohol is detectable. Taste: liquorice, dark fruits, well balanced sweetness-bitterness, complex. Mouthfeel: full, thick, smooth. This is a heart warming beer, filled with lots of different flavours. Wonderful brew but not the best of the Chimay trappists.
