A moderately strong Belgian Abbey-style beer. The traditional yeast strain imparts a complex assortment of spicy phenolic and fruity flavors Hints of clove, plum and raisin permeate this rich, malty and full-bodied beer. And its lofty, tan head sits gracefully atop the seductive, deep mahogany nectar.

Extremely complex double. Among the flavors I detected were prunes, raisins and cinnamon. Delicious aroma. Probably the best double I’ve had.

Very cloudy - opaque light brown color, almost
like an extra-cloudy apple cider. No head, with
creamy med carbonation. Aroma is spicy and clovey.
Flavor is mainly sweet, with lots of spicy notes
of clove and yeasty/breadiness. Medium bodied.
