3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this sitting in my frig for a while now and I was waiting for a good reason to open it up. My reason..........Monday. What better cure for the Monday blues than a Trappist ale?
Pours a murky brownish-red with a thick fluffy tan head. Aroma is slightly more subdued that I was expecting. Hints of bitter fruits, molasses, apricot, banana, and a trace of alcohol. Flavor is akin to the aroma. Not in your face, but coats your palate in a pleasant array of flavors. Raisin, caramelized brown sugar, slight hop bitterness, and just the right amount of warmth from the alcohol. Feels very soft on the palate. Overall a very easy to drink, pleasant beer. I prefer the Rochefort 6 but this one still makes a solid appearance.

Molt bona cervesa del estil Abbey Ale, tot i que, no arriba a ser com una bona quàdruple. És molt recomanable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark amber/brown beer, slightly cloudy and well carbonated.
It has a thin foamy head, a good swirl will produce an abundance of surface foam that’s pleasing to look at.
A smell a complex malt bill that is sweet with candied sugar.
Drinks with warming alcohol sweet malts and candied plums.
A thin light mouthfeel.
A good beer with lower more acceptable abv’s meaning that I can drink a few, no problem.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. This struck me as a typical Belgian brew. Persistent head, bubbly carbonation, malty nose, slightly sweet and bitter taste. Fairly strong in alcohol compared with the other elements.
