Poured into a Trappistes Rochefort goblet. Minimal head retention which is an off white and little lacing. The smell is of rasins dates, brown sugar, malty goodness. Taste is similar, with verly little hop presence but not cloying. Carbonation is wonderfully light and mouthfeel is slightly syrupy but silky smooth. Taste is fantastic and similar to the nose with no hot or phenolic surprises. Very straightforward. My new favorite example to the style. It reminds me of a light quad without the belgian yeast peculiarity imparted. This is a fantastic brew. Heavenly.

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
