750 mL corked and caged. Cork has 5/05 printed on it. Mid-brown body with a light film left on the surface of the beer after the light head has faded. Not much lacing when poured into the Brasserie de l’Abbaye des Roc goblet.
Big fruit alcoholic notes in the nose with a hint of spice. Tastes reflects that with plenty of sweet alcoholic notes, sweet fruit, spice and caramel toffee. The finish is what sets this apart from many others of a similar ilk. Very dry with almost a champagne like undertone.
Drinkability is huge, witht he 9.00 % apparent, but at the same time deliciously hidden.
Cracking beer that will doubtless benefit from some laying down but is obviously drinking beautifully relatively young too.
