3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Ruby coloured. Light dusty. Huge beige head. Malt, sweets, spices, fruit and some alcahol in the aroma. Loads of alcahol, malts, sweets and some vague fruit notes in the flavour. Alcahol burnt on the palate. I miss something in the owerall impression. Dosn't seem as wellbalanced as other trappist beers.
