A - Pours a dark brown color and is transparent. Head is super fizzy. It starts as about a quarter inch of beige foam, but is now a puddle on the surface and a ring around the glass.

S - Big brown sugar here. Molasses. Dark fruits with raisins being the biggest component and figs and prunes working their way in also.

T - Massive sweet, sugary notes. Big time brown sugar. Candi sugar. Dark fruit is there, but more subdued. Dates, raisins, plums. More sugary sweetness come in towards the end, bringing in some light caramel flavors.

M - Medium full bodied. Carbonation is way too fizzy and fuzzy. Gets in the way imo. Gotta give this one many swirls to let it die down.

D - This beer is pretty good, but really just doesn't seem to live up to the 8 and 10. I can't seem to get over the carbonation taking away from things here.

Pours a light caramel brown settling into the glass as a softly hazed dark tawny brown coffee color; firm uncrusted light tan bumpy-lumpy head of medium height graces the top. Reduces to a fine skim and collar while the lace stays in minimally thin webs and tiny dots.

Aroma is of chocolate waffer cookies dusted with a spicy nuttyness and a light tinge of cherry alcohol.

Taste is mild with a light bready tone glazed with a even more milding sweet fruity touch of raisin, apple, cherry, pear, and apricot. Slightly sits at the middle with an empty-like sweep of yeast and drys off in a fine, gradual, and easy going slope of cocoa and baking cookie sugars. Finishes a bit bolder with a chocolate waffer cookie filling fading off gently. A very smooth taster and drinker with only slightly moderate amounts of anything. Everything is very slight and gradual in its approach. Nothing big, nothing small; light, delicate, but fairly rich and about as complex as you'd want it to be. Solid medium body with a bready-like chewy texture and smoothness with a very gradually placed crescendo into the finish. How do those Trappists do that?
Gone in a flash! Slides right down without much effort at all.
