porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2005
From the bottle. A copper/brown pour, with a thin amber colored head. Aroma of dates, spices, yeast, and slight citrus. Very effervescent mouth feel. Real sweet, malty flavor.

Red-brown, foamy amber head, heavily carbonated. Citrus aroma, note of nut, prune and bubblegum - slight bandaid. Light, slightly stale hops. Relatively light body, sparkly mouthfeel.

TomDecapolis (4539) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Pours a nice amber brown with a small head. Aroma of dark fruits and candied sugars. Sweet caramel and nut in the flavor. A very solid brune.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Poured a reddish copper color with a large, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, tofee, nuts, spciy cardamom, and light alcohol as well. Taste of citrus, caramel malt, nuts, and yeast, with light alcohol in the background.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Pretty good but not in the league of Rochefort or Westvleteren. It’s a little bit "hot" but not so much so as the regular 8. It lacks the caramel plum smoothness of the much stronger, previously mentioned beers. This one tastes like 12% where the others taste more like this beer’s 8%. It does have a nice warming effect though. Overall a good beer but not as much so when I can buy Rochefort 10 for the same price.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Beautiful pour - a light brown body with red highlights and a towering, creamy beige head. The aroma is fruity, dark cherries and plums, with brown sugar and caramel malt. Medium to light in body, the taste is simple but pleasing, caramel with juicy dark fruits and a suggestion of alcohol. Perhaps a touch sweet for my personal tastes, but very nice indeed.

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 (882) - 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 couldn’t describe all the flavors but this is a great sipping beer! A nice treat.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2005
I’s 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.
