3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can't find a bottling date so impossible to tell how old this is. Pours an opaque dark brown with beige head. Deep, nutty, sherried aroma with hints of dark toffee, baking syrup, malts, lots of dried and preserved fruits, a hint of rhum raisins. Medium+ bodied palate with caramelly maltiness and some sweetness. Medium flavour intensity, good freshness, medium finish. A very good example of the style. Feels like this bottle is a few years old, but sadly there's no way of knowing that with no bottling date on the label.

Hazy thick almost brown looking brew with a really nice head that holds. Smells of raisins, brown sugar, licorice. Taste is toffee, raisins, licorice, herbs, and flowers. The more I let it sit the more complex the flavors become making me think it could be too complex and overly done. Thick and hardy but does not leave a coating behind on the back of the tongue.

This Abbey loves the chocolate chip cookie that I'm eating! The beer is smooth, a little rich, and flavorful.

Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Amber with a medium head. Quite a lot of toffee both in the aroma and taste. Also dried fruit, malt and light spices. Vinous and with warming alcohol.

Tan head that is two fingers in depth. Beer is a dark red/burgandy color. Tastes of chickory wood and cherries along with some other dark fruits. Very floral aroma. Nice malty taste as well as a medium mouth feel. Leaves a pleaseant aftertaste of cherries.
