BB 08-07. Nice and lasting head, and a dark brown beercollor. Nose is very fruity giving plumbs, apricot and overripe grapes. Some spicyness there also but delicately dosed and not overdone, Dark candysugar and good carramellic maltiness. Taste is sweet and alcoholic with very good candytaste and carramellic maltyness and well bittered playing harmonicly together with the alcohol in aftertaste. Fine mouthfeel IMO maybe litle alcoholic but well enjoyable with good taste. Well recomendable IMO but be aware of high alc% that gets you.

This is an overall good beer. I had this beer for months in my fridge but never had the time to open it. Tonight, on Christmas eve, this is the moment.

Poured in my Westvleteren glass the beer looks good. A nice darkbrown to darkred fluid and a firm head with big bubbles. It is a pity that the head disappears so fast.

Good soft smell of caramel and brown sugar and burned malts

The taste is a sweet one. Not complex but that is the case by most of the dark ales.

Merry Christmas!!

Very carbonated Belgian Strong Ale. Deep Brown color. Very, very sweet. This was the part that was a turnoff for me. I had high expectations, as I truly enjoy the other Trappist beers. This one is last on the list as far as I am concerned. Its a good beer, but its very sweet, and I can't imagine drinking very much of it at a time.
