Bière dorée qui cogne quand même un peu dans son verre en boule, la Montagnarde ambrée a un goût qui me fait penser à du bois, mais je ne suis pas un expert...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2016
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, orange, hops and spices.
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit and orange; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and spices.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. A lot of yeast still manages to make it sweet, added sugar or not. Caramel and orange dominate the flavour, which is definitely the best aspect of this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; BB 17.10.2016. Pours a very murky coppery amber with a fast dissipating head. It’s insane how full of floaties the beer is, despite my careful pour, and the bottle having sat still for at least a month! Anyway. The aroma is wonderful, fulsome, there’s a load of prunes and other dark fruits soaked in port wine and covered in warm, liquid caramel, and toffee. Tastes as good, but a new layer of bitterness is added, plus a nice warming spiciness. Just enough sweet - luckily it lacks the overly sugary character of too many strong Belgians. Crisp in the mouth, dryish in the finish. Would happily sip this the whole evening. Excellent brew. I love l’Abbaye des Rocs.
