Bottle at home. Pours a reddish dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits; plum and raisin, caramel, and alcohol. Sweet malty taste, lots of dark fruits, caramelized sugars, and warming alcohol, long lasting, slighty, bitter after taste. Very nice.

Una delle punte di diamante della selezione trappista, anche se non raggiunge la perfezione della sua sorella maggiore. Ugualmente molto complessa, con note di frutta scura, nocciola, caramello, prevalentemente dolce, attraversata da soffuse note alcoliche e calde, stupisce per la sua alta carbonazione. Merita!

Poured from bottle in to chalice. Big aroma of alcohol and slight fruitiness. Head is large and persistent. Flavor is excellent, slightly sweet with hints chocolate and fruit. Many have commented that fig is prevalent and I agree. Incredibly carbonated, definitely a "fizzy" mouth feel, but not at all unpleasant. After taste is lingering, but likable. Another excellent brew from trappist monks.

Quality classic. Beautiful amber brown pour. Nose of dried fruits and caramel malts. Taste adds just a touch of burn, sweetness, and bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel.
