Bottle at blind tiger. Deep brown, cloudy, no head at all. Nose is hit up by bready malt and yeast flavors. Rather sweet aroma: fruity (grapes, dates) with mild vanilla-like alcohol vapors. On the tongue, the big allagash malt hits you up. Caramelic, chocolatey, marzipan-like, very sweet. Easy to pick up alcohol, but it’s an ABT and you don’t mind that. Decent flavor balance, but just not as appealing fruitiness or yeastiness than top examples who are probably just as sweet, but manage to stuck your mind out of this thought. Full body, high carbonation a la allagash, smooth anyway. I found their tripel vastly superior, but allagash knows their brewing, no doubts about it and this will be highly enjoyable in a few years.
