12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into sniffer glass. Burgundy and opaque, fizzy carbonation, moderate fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Medium bodied and dry. A bit thin for my taste. Nose is fruity and herbal. Taste is fruity and earthy, a little syrupy and toffee-y. Tangy. Strong Belgian yeast taste.

Not my favorite. Its pretty malty and smells like an old syrup beer. This is time to try again.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
