St. Bernardus Christmas Ale

Sorry people, this was on location, and so no visual media.

Style and Glass: Strong Dark Belgian Ale, Trappist
ABV, Volume & Calories: 10 % in 22  fl oz. estimated at400 C
Purchased at: Issac Newton’s, Newtown, PA for $18.00

Aroma: malty, sweet, inviting.

Visuals: typical St. Bernardus label — neither inviting or not, like visiting an old friend, dark pour, thin head, opaque, dark body, red brown body, nice lace.

Taste: amazingly balanced, deep flavors, overlapping influences, peach, banana, cinnamon, bitter hops, high strength.

Palate: high quality, fruit juice texture, amazing, deep finish.

Overall: delicious. An amazing treat. Beautiful, rich, and deep. A repeat when I can afford it. A high level favorite. medium value. high craft. Paired with a brownie and ice cream dessert — matched well in sweetness and contrast.
