A: Murky chocolate brown, more towards a milk chocolate... it's lighter than the other two by far. Head is a foamy fizz, retention is a little iffy, but it leaves a nice sheeting behind.

S: Yeast esters offer a bit of plum, buttery scents, and spotty alcohol. A little earthiness.

T: Dark buttered bread, a modest flavour of chocolate/vanilla cream, and a tiny hint of fruitiness.

M: A crisp carbonation that mellows as it goes... smooth, medium body, semi-dry on the finish.

D: Not such a warming alcohol, not as much of a 'sipper' as its bigger brothers. Nonetheless, it has enough to pack a little punch... it just hides it well.

Appearance: 11.2oz bottle poured into a large wine glass. Color is a deep, hazy copper. Some sediment in the glass. Produces about a one-finger head that is off-white and thick. The head recedes slowly and leaves a perfect ring around the top of the glass.

Smell: Wow. The scent of this beer is truly unique and inviting. I'm picking up lots of toasted malt sweetness, caramel, raisins, brown sugar, and a sour character I can't seem to put my finger on. There is also a rich, subtle, grape-like sweetness that almost reminds me of a glass of red wine. A good deal of spicy yeast aroma is also present. Very complex and intriguing.

Taste: Rich and bready, with some sourness and spicy yeast. I'm getting some licorice and almost a smokey maple syrup type flavor. There is a touch of bitterness, but the beer finishes very clean with a somewhat fruity, almost plumb-like taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light-bodied. Good carbonation and very refreshing. Maybe it's consistent with the Trappist style, but I could use a little more body with this one. Very delicious though.

Drinkability: Incredibly smooth and drinkable for a higher ABV beer. If it wasn't for the steeper price tag, I could enjoy a few of these in an evening.
