Une Trappiste? Non. Mais presque, les choses surprenantes, elle ptille agrablement et longuement en bouche, l alcool laisse se dvelopper lentement les armes malts de cacao, cuir, prunes confites. Un tic trop sucr je trouve, mais on est dans ligne des bires trappistes. Mis 7 en got car elle n offre rien de surprenant. Mme si elle est trs bien faite et btie.
