Color- Mahogany, with an off-white head that dissipated to lacy remnants in a couple of minutes.
Nose- Subtle. Brown sugar, loam, perhaps pecans or almonds.
Palate- Medium to lean in body. Brown sugar, quinine, almonds, smoke, coffee. Perhaps something reminiscent of leather on the finish.
This is a nice beer, rather intriguing. Not as voluptuous and instantly gratifying as I would like, however.
I admire the Trappists' skillful balance between body, sweetness and bitterness.
