Another outstanding beer, after abt 12 which is one of my fave beers ever. Not as strong but still a 8%, this is a typical abbey ale. Looks dark red and cloudly, abundant foam that dissipates quickly. Strong malt flavors with some sweet, perhaps caramel, especially in the aftertaste. A bit too carbonated for me: perhaps I didn't pour it correctly, but the foam makes me thing otherwise. This beer gives its best when it warms up a bit.
