chicagobears (446) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 Good looking bruin beer. Nice aromas of brown sugar, banana, carmael. Spicy flavor with a silky texture. A quality trappist beer. I wish I had another.

Bottle. Pours ruby with off white head. Aroma is malt and fruit. Flavor is caraway, fruit, and malt. Quite a unique flavor.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Great looking beer! Pours a beautiful brown with an amber hue and a thick, dense, creamy tan head. The aroma is fruity of dates and brown sugar with a touch of yeast. It’s a very lively beer, with a brown sugar sweetness a date like fruityness, slight junipery spicyness and a subtle nutty finish. Very nice beer.

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Pours brown with thick offwhite head. Aroma is nutty and malty with strong alcohol. Flavor is the same with spice and ripe fruit. Slightly bubbly on the tongue. Slightly bitter yet sweet finish.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Pours a dark amber with a nice lasting tan head. Nice sticky lacing. A malty banana aroma. A wonderful flavor of malts, spices, and fruits. Another wonderful Belgian beer.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
11.2 oz. bottle (11/06). Pours ruddy brown with a large tan frothy/foamy head. Strong aroma of old fruit and a bit of alcohol. Medium carbonation and very fuzzy, kind of strange/mildly unpleasant mouthfeel which covered the taste. What taste there was was excellent, a bit of fruit and spice which covered the alcohol very well. Overall a very good BSA with slightly too-mild taste and strange mouthfeel. Much better at the beginning, that fuzzy mouthfeel lingers.

DarkMagus (499) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thick, bubbly head that settles into a dense layer of microscopic bubbles (and never disappears)--very cappuccino-like. Aroma of fresh fruits (primarily apples), some hints of blueberry, malts, yeast, citrus. Dense and rich flavors, overall somewhat acidic and citrusy, but balanced by a nice malty and yeasty breadiness, some candy-like sweetness and hints of some gentle spiciness. Not as intense and powerful as some others of this style. Soft and silky mouthfeel with a bit of prickliness on the tongue from the carbonation. Definitely a bit of a lighter body than other Trappists or beers of this style. Pretty solid nonetheless.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thank you Secret Santa. Brown color with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is fruity and acidicly tart. Flavor is much the same, there is some malt sweetness but is offset by the tart finish. Rough around the edges, dosn’t have much balance.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2006
Robe brune foncée surmontée d’une mousse beige en dentelle qui persiste. Arômes de caramel et de grains rôtis. Saveurs de caramel, de malt rôti, d’alcool, de levure, de cerise et de sucre candi.

Smells like artificial banana but in a good way. Taste is smooth but with quite a bit of banana in the flavor as well. Certainly wouldn’t know it was 8%.
