Bottle purchased at Apogee in Rochester, NY.

Pours out a striking dark amber red color, with a huge 4 inch head.

Smells like Belgian yeast, caramel, prunes, and raisins.

This one tastes pretty good, but falls a little bit flat near the end. Big tastes of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, honey, and toasted bread. Slightly thinly flavored, though.

This one has a fairly thin body, with a small amount of carbonation, and a fairly creamy mouthfeel.

Tasty, but not one of the best Trappist beers.
