Poured into snifter.
Hazy brown beer with nice beige head, excellent retention. Smell of hazelnuts, dark fruits, toffee, smoke. Flavour of dark fruits, candy sugar, yeasts, smoke notes, very complex, balance between sweetness, sourness and bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly alcoholic brew. Magnificent!

They had lots of stuff hand written about it being a handmade cloister beer, so they're right in that they're an Abbey beer. At 8%, I was concerned for my sobriety, but what the hell. Surprisingly, it had lots of banana flavors and virtually no bitterness, but had a few sour notes, so it was leaning towards an Oud Brun. The alcohol was hidden well in a very caramel-forward beer. 4.
