Sigmund (4820) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2005
330ml bottle, bought at Borough Market, London. Pours with a large light tan head, colour is brown, slightly hazy. Excellent aroma: Oak, sandalwood, camphor, caramel, toffee, spices. Flavour has caramel, spices, oak - but is not quite as complex as I hoped. Still very good - it’s a Trappist! Moderate but decent hops + spices in the finish.

Silty brown color, beige foamy head. Aroma is malty with dark fruit. Prune, cherry, some cocoa and hints of spice.Smooth, complex and balanced although a bit thin. A decent example of the style, but lacking a standout character of it’s own.
