jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Pours dark brown with a mid-sized, quickly-dissipating head. Aroma of plum, fig, candi sugars, and dark chocolate. Flavor matches the aroma, with dominance by the candi sugar. No alcohol flavor. Very smooth, almost like a dubbel. Still, a step down from the other Trappist strong ales.

Tejas (874) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Tons of malty aroma. BIG cloud like beige head that lasted the entire drink. Beautiful lacing on the glass to boot. Little tingly on the tongue. 8% really sneaks up on you. I honestly couldnít describe all the flavors but this is a great sipping beer! A nice treat.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2005
Iís a very nice brew. Dark chocolate, maybe some caramel and brown sugar in the taste. At first it tastes like a very strong beer, but it settles down during the drink. Nice brew.

vanvenlo (1287) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2005
1-Apr-05 Complex hop fruit malt aroma. Brown red hazy colour. Suds lacing and reasonabe head. Bloody great fruit malt hop balance. Medium mouthfeel and lingering tangy malt hop finish. Not a fan of bruins but the best bruin Iíve had.

kepano (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Poured a very deep brownish red with a thick and persistant creamy beige head. The nose is fruity and sweet, makes you want to dive right into it. The aroma reminds of the Rochefort 8, with lots of dark fruits but a certain lightness. Figs, plums, berries of all sorts, a bit of red wine, some spices, burnt caramel and little woodiness. The mouthfeel is fantastic with average carbonation and a lot of creaminess hitting the back of your throat right as youíre about to swallow. The flavor gives way to sweet roasted malts: molasses, caramel, coffee and dark chocolate. True to the trappist style. Iím very surprised to see this one rated so low.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 24, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Highly carbonated pour with a pillowy, two fingered head; intense, spiced-apple aroma with some cherry, nut and coriander notes; tart and tangy; spicey, but not quite as spicy (clove, coriander, nutmeg) as the aroma would indicate; dark fruit and oak flavors; a tad sour and pretty yeasty with a dry finish; fairly thin bodied. An interesting piece of art, but Iím not overly excited about this.

bkurtz (863) - PERU - JUL 23, 2005
Poured a deep copper with a big head and lacing. Nice flavors, but not overly complex.

Pours dark brown with a nice big white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Flavors were raisins, plums, and a little coffee.

blankboy (6236) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy dark brown with a huge off-white frothy head. Sweet, nutty aroma of malt, yeast, alcohol and spices. Flavour of sweet malts, nuts, fruit, spices and alcohol. I felt I could taste the alcohol a bit too much and the palate was too harsh. Enjoyable but pales to some other Trappist beers.
