Received this bottle from Matt at Riversbend - Thanks. The pour is copper with a very large amount of head. The smell is sweet, some fruity notes, dark fruits, maybe even some sort of banana smell as well. I note maybe some caramel notes in there as well. The taste is leaving me with a little to be desired, but still not bad. The taste is sorta smooth, with only hints of the above mentioned flavors. Enjoyable.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from Bitter Virtue, BB Apr 08. Reddish brown, long lasting head. bready, caramel and raisiny aroma. Slightly sweet as would be expected with all the malty stuff going on but good earthy hoppiness in the finish and slight tartness to the yeast help balance it out. Pretty good.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Pours copper with a soft off-white head. This beer really kept the head alive, never looked flat. Starts with a kinda dark fruity, molasses, and caramel malt taste. Lingering spice throughout with a smooth mouthfeel, dry finish, and light sourness. Very nice beer with a ton of flavor that changes as this beer warms. By the last sips more of a earthy and musty notes were coming out in the finish accenting the light sourness and blending with the yeast spiciness.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 33cL bottle from the abbey. Same outstanding quality as the blond includigng the explosive carbonation. Great trappist beer and definitely a beer worth trying to find.

(Bottle) Pours hazy brown. Sweet, dried fruits aroma with allmond and raisin. Sugary and maybe some honey hints. Earthy undertones with wet tobacco. Small notes of spices and sour cherries. Sweet flavour with brown sugar, toffee and some chocolate. Rather light body. Alcohol and sour hints.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 10, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Very, very good trappist brune trappist. Even tho quite dark, it’s still surprisingly refreshing. Champagne like mouthfeel. Really nice one. Edit: Watch out that you won’t get a bad specimen which tastes mainly sour and very thin.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Beautiful pour. Hazy brown. Heavy head of cream hovering the surface. This beer looks great! Aroma of sweet malt and some clove. Very balanced body. Slight hop bitterness is in the distant dry finish. What an amazingly refreshing beer.

peterstrongale (43) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Hazy, nutty brown beer with a creamy beige head on top. The nose is also slight sweet and nutty. It has touches of chesnuts, dried fruits, some pepper, caramel and fine caramel malts. The taste is smooth, malty and has an interesting touch of hop bitters in the finale. A classic in the real Trappist style.

Nice Dark pour with a Huge Huge Head. Some metallic aromas mixed in with the dusty aromas of dark and dried fruit. Flavor was better. Some molassas and more dark fruit. Pretty good.
