The Trappist, In Oakland On Draft.
This is a big bold wonderfull beer. 10.5% ABV so it is a good cold day beer.
This is one of the best beers I have ever had. The Trappist knows how to server beer, so the glass-ware was perfect, and the temp was good.
Appearance: Dark Amber, white head, about 1 inch of head in the Chalice. The head retains for quit a while, but almost no retention.
Nose: Ripe fruit, evedence of raisins, plumbs and figs. some type of spice is evedent but hard to distinguish. Very enjoyable nose, that is complex
Taste: Bold, complex like the nose, fruity but not sweet, or not too sweet. Lots of spice here, raisin and plumb with the sense of cloves.
After taste is slightly alcoholic (dude its 10%) and sweet. That lingers.
THis is an excellent beer with strong cheese or salami!
Overall: If you like big bold ass kickers, this is great.
This beer in in my top 5 of all time.
Serving type: on-tap
