COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huge, copper-colored, bottle-conditioned ale, still hot off the presses, Achel Trappist Extra is the latest from the tiny brewery at the St. Benedictus Abbey at Achel, in the Northeast of Belgium. At this year's World Beer Championships in Chicago, the Extra was easily the best of the many Trappist beers tasted, scoring 97 points and an "Exceptional" rating. You will find this a very satisfying beer, with just a little malt sweetness, dried fruit flavors, warm sherry notes, and a brisk balancing backdrop of fresh hop bitterness.

drpimento (2482) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Great appearance with a huge foamy, tan, long lasting head, plenty of lace, and a slightly hazy, brown amber color. Aroma is figs, dates, raisins, malt, toffee, caramel. Flavor is sweet up front then the aroma characteristics, then a few odd tastes. Body is good. Finish has those odd tastes along with some residual sweetness giving it a medicinal cast. But overall, very good.
