Belgium knows their beers. Was in Brussels just a while back and stuck mostly to drinking trappist ales, but had to try this world famous abbey ale. And what a treat. Just a stunning beer. Deep brown color and a head you could eat with a spoon. Lace sticks on the glass to the last sip. Smell is sweet and malty, thats dominant. Spices like cinnamon and clove are in there. Tastes christmasy, which is hard to describe. The spices from the smell are definitely still there. Huge sweetness. It's like caramel or some kind of malty molasses. Toasty and bread, with just the slightest bitterness toward the end. Also, I have to mention the huge alcohol taste. It's not the first thing that hits you (That's the sweetness of the malt) but it is obvious. Goes down smooth with subtle carbonation and huge creaminess. Somehow, this high alcohol beer is very drinkable, I'd have another. This is not overrated, get some.
