I would rate this second only to Corsendonk Pater Abbey Brown Ale. Otherwise, it's a superb beer with complex flavors that remind me of figs or raisins which are followed by a fruity/bitter aftertaste that quickly reduces to a subtle sweetness left behind. I enjoyed it, thoroughly. Also, you have to pose like the monk on the bottle while you drink it. Otherwise, you're not getting the full experience.
