There is a dark brown color with some light head.

The aroma is very fruity with a smaller head than Chimay Blue. It surely smells like big cherry. There is biscuit, malt, and raisins as well.

There is a smooth Belgian yeast. There is huge cherry. Then there is a bit of prune, plum, and stone fruits. It’s almost like rum with the sweetness.

It surely is the best of the blind taste I had with St Bernardus 12 and Chimay Blue. By far my favorite. Next to Pannepot Reserva, this is maybe my favorite quad. I recommend this extremely highly.

reviewed as one who normally leans towards stouts and ipas, this was a bottle from family in portland.

i normally don't care for belgians, but this one would be worth revisiting:

solid head dies down to not a trace. no lacing to speak of.
nose is subtle, softly fruity.
taste is, again, subtle, but much more pleasing than other belgians i've had. very smooth, refined, and hides its very high abv remarkably well. none of the artificial tasting flavors i find in most belgians. even once it's warmed, it is very cloy about its character.
will have to put this on list of specialties to try again :)
superb effort by the monks!
