Truly great dark Belgian ale. Plenty of alcohol, malty, with some bread notes. Smooth, tasty.

Had this in Tampa, but haven't found this in New Orleans where I live.

Pour is dark brown. Foamy, medium, tan head that Fades slowly to a ring.

Smells dark fruits, molasses, bread and toasted malt.

Taste toasted malts, raisin, Plum, light cherry, molasses and a hint of alcohol. Finish is semi-dry with a malty linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

Pours a dark, reddish brown, with a thickness like good juice. The foam is decent, but quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is dominated by malt, but also very fruity notes. The taste is also dominated by a heavy play between malts and fruit, like blackberries. A note of alcohol is there, but very subtle. It just adds to the rich, full body. Hell of a good beer, but so heavy I'll save the other three for special occasions. Bottle ordered directly from Stift Engelszell.

2015 bottling

Appearance: Pours with a bountiful ecru head capping the mahogany colored liquid; copious lacing

Smell: Roasted tones with burnt brown sugar and dark fruit - date and fig

Taste: Burnt brown sugar and dark fruit forward, with the date and fig tones joined by molasses, through the middle; bitter and herbal tones emerge in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: Clearly not up there with the Trappist big boys in the style

O:
Not as Yeast-heavy as the "True" Belgians.Dark Fruit esters are more prominent in this.
It almost goes into Flanders Red territory with it's Balsamic vinegar note.
A really good and interesting Trappist.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: Deep, rich brown with a creamy, lingering head.

Nose: Figs and other dark fruits. Prunes. The figs are jammy. Some chocolate.

Taste: Chewy like molasses - a monstrously "big" beer. Somewhat bloody, metallic finish that takes away from the incredible beginning. Somewhat syrupy. Full-bodied and full of contemplative prayer. ;)

Overall: Quite delicious and worthwhile! The nose is more complex than the taste on this beer.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of dark fruits, malts, molasses. Taste is dark fruits, alcohol, bready malts, molasses, boozy and sweet at the finish. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worthy trying.
