Belgium- Belgian Strong Dark Ale- 9.2% ABV. TRAPPIST ALE. This beer is a lower gravity version of Rochefort 10. The dark roasted malts, chocolate and fruit flavors make this very pleasant to drink. BeerAdvocate's #23 of 25 All-Time Top Beers 


Flavor & Aftertaste: Immediately warming, alcohol is noticeable. Caramel, pepper, spicy, plum & raisin. Mild bitterness.

Mouth-feel: Medium to full bodied, effervescent, drying

Overall: Excellent Trappist beer. Has the characteristic champaign-like effervescence. Malt forward with darker fruit flavors, caramel. Spiciness is prominent and pepper. Good medium to full body mouthfeel. Has some balancing bitterness, but it is barely noticeable. Alcohol is noticeable, quite upfront, but it is 11% ABV. It is amazingly drinkable for a high carbonation, 10% plus ABV beer. Found no flaws in this one. Have to give it a 5 for being a world class Trappist beer.
