Overall Impression
A pale, somewhat spicy, dry, strong Trappist ale with a pleasant rounded malt flavor and firm bitterness.

Quite aromatic, with spicy, fruity, and light alcohol notes combining with the supportive clean malt character to

produce a surprisingly drinkable beverage considering the high alcohol level.

Comments
High in alcohol but does not taste strongly of alcohol. The best examples are sneaky, not obvious. High carbonation and attenuation helps to bring out the many flavors and to increase the perception of a dry finish. Most Trappist versions have at least 30 IBUs and are very dry. Traditionally bottle-conditioned (or refermented in the bottle).
