The abdis line from Liefman's features a nun in habit with a lot of lipstick and mascara. Seems stupid as far as a beer label goes, but that is what they chose.

Pours a deep mahogany with a very small head.

Nose is yeasty, only a little malty, seems subdued for the style.

Taste is a bit sweeter than I expected from the nose, like an over-sugared dark candy. malt is almost absent in the taste, no taste of roasted malt though there is a hint of metal. Unusual for a brune in that the taste profile is atypical.

Unremarkable, which is my conclusion with the entire Abdis trio of beers from Liefman's.

Abdis abbey beer is kind of sweet, with some coffee notes and roasted maltiness.
When I say 'kind of sweet' I mean sugarry and candy, not fruity.
Mouthfeel is watery.
It's easy drinkable though: meant for people who don't want too much tasting or sniffing.
In other words: not really great.
Plus the label is indeed rather pointless for serious beerfans.
