Reminds me of a thinner abbey dubbel. Slightly sweet and fruity with a very refined flavor & light bittersweet aftertaste.

One of my favorite occasional beers. Very smooth, sweet with nice lacing and mouthfeel.
Will buy again 100%

A 330ml bottle with a best before end of March 2016 date and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: It poured a clear dark reddish copper with a slightly less than one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving some nice lacing.

Aroma: Strong vanilla, raisins and oak with hints of toffee, caramel and rum.

Taste: Sweet-ish rum and plum with a nice long vanilla, oak, coconut finish. There was also some hints of caramel and butterscotch in between.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with light carbonation.

Overall: This was nice and interesting albeit a bit vanilla heavy. I would not categorise this as an everyday drink but it’s something I wouldn’t mind trying every now and then.
