Abbey beer

Thomas was over here from Lisbon a week ago, for a school-friend's wedding. Ampleforth Abbey Beer was served, and he kindly brought me a bottle - the first time I'd tasted it. The flavour is good: the monks having come from Dieulouard in Northern France, one might expect it to feel quite "Belgian" - and it's as strong (7.0%). But it looks strange: though I'm not good on colours, it reminded me of rather thin borsht.
