Pours a nice, red-brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma has lots of raisins, some oakiness, chocolate, plums and a great yeasty note. A good, frothy, lightly creamy, mouthfee - just a tad on the thin side, perhapsl. Flavour has good chocolate, yeast and a good deal of dried fruits. Nice.

Darkish fruity bit yeasty caramel flavour with some alcohol, bit spice, sort of wine like towards the finish. Strange abbey dubbel.
