Has a clouded dark brown color with a thick off-white head. Smell is of malt and spice. Taste is of malt/spice/chocolate and finishes with a slight alcohol bit. Overall a fine strong ale.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a large, beige head. Aroma is cola and caramel. Taste is caramel, dried fruit, Surprisingly strong herbal bitterness hits on the finish. Dries up. Too light with too strong carbonation. Not that pleasant.

Mahogany reddish brown clear beer which becomes hazy after pouring in the yeast. White big head. Aroma and flavor have dark fruits, syrupy sweetness, alcohol, pear peel like Belgian yeast and ripe banana. Adding the yeast adds the pear aroma and complexity in the flavor, makes it more fruity refreshing. Palate is thicker than medium with strong foamy carbonation. Finish has a mild bite of bitterness with alcohol. Aftertaste is dry syrupy. A decent dark Belgian Ale which has a bit too much alcohol.

By far my favorite beer, this strong dark beast is my constant companion... at least when I can find it. I’m lucky enough that it is served continuously on tap at my regular bar.

Mmmn, Belgian ales. Pours a lovely ruby colour with a tan-coloured head. Toasty nutty notes, ripe fruit, treacle. Well reflected in the taste, though slightly metallic on the finish. A great abbey ale, though might benefit from some aging.
