Style; glass: Belgian Strong Ale; Trappist
12 fl oz x 10.3% ABV = 123.6 / 60 = 2.06 beers * 150 C = 309 calories (est.)
Purchased at: Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ for $2.50
Aroma: nice, coriander, syrup, honeysuckle, cardamom, curry.
Visuals: classic packaging, deep orange body, thick, long lasting white head, sticky intricate lace.
Taste: unbalanced, cloyingly sweet, a bit overpowering, with some chemical notes, though after the initial shock, fruit, nuances of layering in peach and apple, and earthy flavors emerge.
Palate: creamy, with a choclatey sweet finish, some sourness remains.
Overall: A nice effort by Boston, but they’re out of their league vs. Trappists. I’d have it again, if the price was a bit cheaper.
