Dark reddish brown. nice color actually with a 2 finger dense head Grape juice, apple, other dark fruits, maybe sour cherry aroma. Crisp mouthfeel, some sugars at middle and finish. Loads of fruit. Yu for sure taste the ABV in this. boozy, thick, the sour fades almost immediately to booze.

draught@Au Trappiste - hazy dark brown beer with a little foam left; aroma of plums, banana and wood; notes of pear and Cognac; full-bodied and highly sweet, tons of residual sweetness, figs, plums and other ripe fruits in a long woody aftertaste - very good but clearly too sweet for me to be great

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Raisiny oaky vinous nose. Decent maltiness profile, caramel, wood, dried fruits. Mostly sweet with light bitterness, quite sticky. Weird - feels quite complex and enjoyable, but with bit shallow finish. No sign of 14 ABV. Quite awesome brew, but lacks bit intensity.

Tap at Bruges Atelier. Aroma is booze, rich and fruity. Warming. Big and a little scary. Think this was the beer that pushed me over the edge judging by my notes.
