3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Bottle. Brown hazelnut color. Dark fruity nose. Plums and figs, yeasty characters. Some chocolate. Full bodied, smooth. Belgian yeasty notes, overripe fruits, dark caramel, candi pudding. Not as clean malty as I was hoping, some estery things that seem to do better in a weizenbock. But nice, of course, smooth etc.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a hazy murky brown colour with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is yeast and roasted malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with liqourice, malt, yeast and a little red-berry fruitiness on the smooth and refreshing palate. This is almost up there with Westmalle for me. Not quite, but not so far away.

Richiama chiaramente lo stile di abazia, pur mantenedo il carattere e la luppolatura che contraddistinguono questo fantastico birrificio.
