Default Wyeast Trappist Yeast question?

I brewed an Xmas ale experiment using Wyeast Trappist yeast back in 2nd week in August (primary 12 days, secondary 20 days) OG: 1.085 FG:1.017. I’ve never used this strain of yeast before and my brew has an odd aftertaste almost like a wine taste. It was also the first time I used Belgium Candi Sugar 1lb in a brew. Is this just the yeast strain characteristic to produce the wine taste or could it be the candi sugar or could it just be me? It’s not bad, just takes a half a pint to get use too. Any suggestions on a big dark winter brew?

Are you talking about 3787? It'll make fruity, alcohol, and tart flavors, which are also present in wine. Give it a few more months and I guarantee it will taste better.

Thanks, I was just wondering. It's mellowed some from the first taste test a few weeks back.
