4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours to a nice white head, moderate lacing and brown amber color. Aroma is a complex blend of fruits, spices, vanilla, clove and specialty malts. Flavor is a complex blend of caramel like flavors, complex sweet spicy and fruity. Refreshing clove finish. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Overall this beer rocks my palate and totally owns my nose.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small off white head. The nose has a little Belgian yeast, spice, and a light hint of banana. A bit weak flavor wise. There is a hint of chocolate, bread, yeast, caramel, and light banana. Light to medium body with an average finish. This one didnít do much for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is very yeasty. Taste is alcohol, yeast fruit/banana, a mild sweet malt. Tastes stronger in ABV than it is. Not bad...definitely a Trappist-style ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark, lacquered wood brown with almost no residual head. The nose of this beer is fairly weak, but I can make out the belgian yeast aroma and a bit of malts. The taste is interesting because it starts out belgian, albeit a bit less fruity than the actual abbey doubles, but finishes roasty, which is something I am not used to. Finishes with a mild bitterness that lingers and some booziness. Not bad, not fantastic either.
