4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2010 On the light side of dark brown, if that makes sense, very sedimented and with a big rich head. Deep malty, fruity aroma with rich plum, brown sugar, light toffee, raisin, peach and faint pear, alcohol and doughy yeast. Sweet malts in the body mix with a surprising tartness (mainly yeastiness). Fruits are subdued but still there (plum, pear). The malts seem subdued by a bit of wateriness...this is a 7.5% beer my I remind you so thatï¿½s a shocker but I may be viewing this flavour profile vis-a-vis its bigger brothers without realizing it. Anyway, a solid, sessionable trappist brown. Upon multiple tastings, I have upgraded my score significantly, to reflect the floral, smooth awesomeness of this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong aroma of medium dark fruit. Brown malty yeasty aroma. It smells brown. Vigorous, persistent tan head. Lacing. Starts with mysterious fruit, passes to something like bread dough. Then caramel and chocolate notes rise. It is a bit thin, say medium mouthfeel. It is certainly unique and complex. It is good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. This was the last in the process of tasting all three of these brews. Aroma, flavor and body was much the same as the 10 and 8. With a lowerer and smaller alcohol finish. This was a good thing. The complex flavor and finish generated more character.

Pours muddy brown with big beige head that eventually settles down. Flavor is sweet and smooth, fruity (berry), slightly caramel. One of the easiest drinking 7.5% beers I’ve ever had.
