This beer is traditionally made with a rather simple malt bill but the unique flavors come from authentic Trappists yeast and over 80 pounds of caramelized sugars imported from Belgium. Aroma profile is full of fruity esters such as raisins,plums,bananas and a slight clove notes. A very low hop profile lets the complex malt flavors really stand out.
With generous amounts of caramel, black and chocolate grain, this malty ale is fermented with bourbon vanilla beans and later black sweet cherries are added. These combine to provide a vanilla cherry aroma with a silky mouthfeel. A low hopping schedule ensures there is little bitterness for this smooth delightful beer.
