Sliightly cloudy mahogany with thin foamy head with no retention or lacing. Brown sugar with yeast notes and a bit of dried fruit . A mixture of brown sugar with a drop of molasses, dried fig, and slightly grassy with a sourdough finish. Well balanced with subtle flavor and a clean vodka-like aftertaste. An interesting foamy and chewy mouthfeel with a tingle that tends to linger on.
The flavors are all quite subtle and balanced in this. Wonderful to sip and just roll around.It's a little foamy but not overwhelming like some other abbey ales. All in all, you just can't go wrong with this one.
