chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
750 ML bottle purchased at World Market in Redding, CA. Color: Medium Brown. Aroma / Bouquet: Chocolate, cocoa, toffee. Flavor: Can we say liquid chocolate? Palate: medium to fullness of mouthfeel. What a great beer! It is worth more than the rating that Rate Beerians are giving it. Praise the LORD for the Trappist & Abbey ales!!

Moravius (708) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2014
Flasche (75 cl) von der Brauerei in der Abbaye d’Aulne, MHD: 11/2013, zwei Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Tiefes Rotbraun, klar; kurzlebiger Schaum. - Nase sehr süß karamelmalzig mit weinigen, schwach obergärig beerenfruchtigen und leider auch etwas muffig-herben Noten; ähnlich wie ein zweitklassiger Doppelbock. - Antrunk sehr süß dunkelmalzig mit simpler Karamelmalzbittere aber ohne nennenswerte Hopfenaromen. Sehr rezent, geradezu brauseartig; eher dünnes Mundgefühl. Süßsäuerlicher Abgang mit etwas holziger aber wenig differenzierte Hopfenherbe. - Recht simples dunkles Starkbier, das auch nach zwei Jahren Lagerung noch so schlicht und einfallslos schmeckt wie am ersten Tag. Nicht empfehlenswert.

Valt zeer goed mee. Uitgesproken smaak, niet om te zeggen bij de beste bieren in België, maar een meer dan goede middenmoter

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Being Belgian, I am fully aware of the lack of style standards among Belgian ales, but something in my head objects when I see a dark beer named ’triple’, at least if Westmalle Tripel is to be regarded as the prototype of the genre... So in spite of its name, in my classification this NOT a triple. Anyway: yellowish beige head, not very thick and eventually dissipating, colour a pure bronze, clear. Aroma dark malts (caramel, chocolate, hint of coffee), dates, blackcurrant, pear, a slight ’perfume’ of caramel candy, liquorice; mouthfeel smooth, rounded, a bit resinous, tastes sweetish (malt sweetness) with sharp carbonisation in the beginning and warming alcohol in the finish. A bit boring, like most of the ADA beers.

Case (288) - GERMANY - MAY 20, 2014
Pours dark red-brown. Aroma is pure caramel and in fact, so is the taste. Extremely sweet, slightly spicy, loads of carbonation. Just way too sweet.

JefVerstraete (1856) - Ghent, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
Dark red/brown beer. Medium carbonation. Unbalanced beer. Aroma of caramel whit sweet and sour notes. Harsh bitter finish. Not good.

Svesse (6717) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2013
(Bottle, Delirium Monasterium, Brussels, 25 Oct 2013) Dark reddish brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, dark bread and dried fruit. Malty taste with notes of caramel, dark bread, raisins, a touch of chocolate and a mild spicy bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Nothing unexpected, but tasty and quite nice.

EddyBeer1 (997) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Brune classique voilée, pétillance moyenne, mousse beige clair. Malts caramel torréfiés, notes de fruits foncés et de chocolat, un rien métallique, cola et sucre candi, petite amertume réglissée. Assez classique...
