3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a murky medium brown with an average sized (1-2 Finger) fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted cookie malt, light herbal hops and a moldy yeast with notes of dark fruit (prunes and raisons) and caramel.
It tasted bitter-sweet and a tad sour with a hint of caramel at first and finished about the same but with a strong note of dried fruit towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow and had a nice fruity aftertaste that lingered a bit longer.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a superb tasting Abbey Ale with a great drinkability, which did a great job of hiding the high ABV...

Beautiful pour into the glass with a nice color. Brown sugar, date and figs on the nose. Nice head w/excellent lacing on the glass. The lighter mouthfeel contradicts the heavier aromas but in a very pleasant way. Nice finish and an excellent beer.
