From a 25.4 oz bottle into a pint glass. Tremendous foamy brown/tan head threatens to overflow. Nice slow fade with huge amounts of clingy lace and clumpy head left behind. Clear chestnut color with few precipitating bubbles. Nose of sugary sweet malt, dark fruits, and a bit of boozy alcohol. Mouth is thin and easy going with little carbonation in evidence. Tastes of bready malt, definite clean alcohol presence on the finish. Hints of bitterness. Overall: Great appearance and nose. Flavor was a bit underwhelming however I have a feeling I had a rather old bottle.

2nd bottle, poured in a flute :

Gorgeous veiled copper color. Extra foamy head with residues. Good lacing.

Pleasant sweet aromas of fruits and nutty caramel. Perfectly spiced and floral hints.

Sweet flavor of bread and fruits. Caramel like feeling with gentle spices. Very slight alcohol aftertaste.

A warming slick body with ample prickly carbonation. Very delicate and balanced finish for a strong beer.

Very fresh, well crafted, full flavored. Overall a true joy to drink!

Apariencia: Cerveza turbia color marrón intenso con una dorada cabeza de espuma de alta densidad y retención.

Aroma: Aroma agradable a caramelo, azúcar quemada, alcohol. El aroma a lúpulo es prácticamente imperceptible.

Sabor: Sabor ligero a malta con notas a caramelo, melasa, frutas y sensación alcohólica. Agradablemente dulce y sutilmente amarga. Algunas notas de hierbas aromáticas.

Sensación: Cuerpo alto con carbonatación media-alta.

General: Una cerveza bastante rica. Balanceada en sus aspectos y con personalidad. Representa de manera muy adecuada el estilo de cervezas de abadía. Muy recomendable para cerveceros con gusto por los sabores complejos.
