Dark brown colour and kicks off with a big head. This recedes fast leaving some good lacing.

The smell is of dark fruit and brown sugar.

This beer has many elements to the taste. I detect raisins, cola, booze, brown sugar, treacle, alcohol warmth and a syrupy warmth. A complex beer indeed!
There is a phenolic, medicinal flavour in there and a fair level of bitterness hiding beneath the sweet flavours.
The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and this Belgian strong ale really tingles on the tongue.

Overall, a big tasty Belgian beer. Right up there with Rochefort 10 and Chimay in this category.

94/100

Been wanting to try this one for a while based on its reputation. A dark ale brewed in the Trappist monk style in Belgium. Malty and sweet, but not too bitter. Very large head. Quite simply one of the best beers I've ever had
