Pours a hazy mahogany with a foamy and lasting beige head, which laces.
Tart, fruity nose.
Yeasty aroma with dried fruits, caramel, alcohol, bread(crust) and herbs. Syrupy mouthfeel.
Dry and warming, sweetbitter finish escorted by citrusses, alcohol and distintct spices, which leaves a long tart aftertaste behind. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle by 10-2014. Sweet nose vaguely of malt, some toffee and light nuts under the faint fruit. Amber-ruby body with lots of carbonation and a foaming tan head. There’s also a Belgian yeast component. Taste is sweet, sickly so with some dark bitterness and more yeast; some Maillard fun here but it’s closer to the plum-and-berry side, with caramel/toffee and earth. Medium body, a touch boozy but not too bad. Overall not very memorable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a thick white medium dense head.
Very dark amber.
Aroma is mostly dark chocolate, roasted coffee .. still a bit thin.
Medium sweet, medium bodied, alot of hops along with a thin malt,, rather thin texture, lively carb, finished way too fast for this type of Ale.
I was expecting more .. as I was with the rest of the La Trappe line ... The only La Trape that has really caught me was an old Quatruppel, think it was 4-5 years in the bottle.
Not too bad overall, value is 6/10.
